For a Boy

A little boy will be arriving in our family very soon. Number 2 grandson !!!
The last five grandchildren born have all been girls, and of course I adore girls, but a little boy is going to be oh ,so very special, I am counting the days now..as is his Mum and Dad !
I made him a little vest, and even though it looks large here in the photo, it is actually very small indeed. It only took one skein of Regia sock yarn, and I like it so much that I shall probably knit him another.

Hi, just found your blog and that is the loveliest baby vest. I am expecting a grandchild into the family in October and I would love to use Regia sock yarn to knit some little socks.....I'm just wondering if it will be soft enough next to baby's skin.

Thank you Florrie. Yes, I think the sock yarn will be OK because the baby will probably be wearing a soft cotton babygro underneath the vest, so should be fine.

Florrie said...

Oh sorry.......I meant the socks against the babys skin.

such a sweet vest - and such an excitement to think of a baby boy! Congratulations to all, in anticipation :^)

Sally Anne said...

Oh, I am sorry Florrie, I didn't read it properly. There certainly is softer 4 ply around for socks and booties, maybe a air in Regia for a slightly older baby ?

That's so lovely! And this post made me smile, too. I'm one of four girls, and I have 4 nieces and 1 nephew. I clearly remember the excitement in our family when my nephew was born! Oh how wonderful to have a boy, at last!!

That is the cutest little vest and what a wonderful idea to use the sock yarn. Congrats on the soon to be born little boy. Grandchildren are just the most exquisite treasure in the whole wide world!!!

I'm checking in on my New Zealand bloggers that I follow--just read about the quake and hope you and the family are OKAY. Prayers from Wisconsin

Me, too, Sally...just writing to check whether you are all ok there...I heard about it on the radio tonight and just shuddered.

That is adorable, lucky baby. I've used sock yarn to knit jumpers but I really do like the little vest, wonder who I can persuade to have a little boy.
