I feel like we would have gotten along swimmingly. A couple weeks ago, KP sent me, out of the blue, two of the most beautiful skeins of their new Hawthorne yarns:.
Lovely, deep-chocolate-colored fingering weight in Fawn Kettle-dye , and gorgeous rainforest-colored sport weight in Mt. The yarn is actually much more beautiful in real life than in any of these pictures-all subtle variation and intense shifting colors. Not washed-out and kind-of blueish. Perfect timing!
The new sport-weight yarn is perfect for size 5 garter stitch, and makes a super cute BSJ. The Hawthorne Fingering, held double, is just a little thicker than the Hawthorne Sport.
The brown parts of the sweater ended up a little stiff. The sweater, while not perfect, is super cute. Just saying. For some reason I decided that the perfect wedding gift was a hand knit or crocheted blanket.
I soon began to hate that decision. A herd? A pod? A holler? But this time, I am being smart about what hand knits I give out. Babies get sweaters. Not great big blankets. I went to Ravelry and started poking around for an alternative, and I found the perfect baby sweater. So, if you have a skein or two of something superwash, and you know of someone or six people in the family way, keep the Baby Sophisticate in mind.

As you knit it up it looks like nothing more than a random pile of knitting. This sweater is one of my favorite things to knit for my friends that are expecting.
Or origami. Or magical origami. This pattern uses just about the same amount of yarn that a grown-up pair of socks uses, so one g skein of sock yarn will make an entire sweater. AND, this pattern looks really cool when you use self-striping sock yarn. So, go get yourself a copy of this pattern and make a bunch of baby sweaters.
