Knitting for babies

I’ve knitted many sweaters, hats and blankets for newborn babies of friends and family. This year, I’m knitting for my own baby, due this summer. I want my knits to be nearly perfect: Nice, good quality yarn, nicely knitted etc. But knitting for your first child tunes up the need for perfection. Because of that I have now frogged a week’s worth of knitting, because it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it. It was not a major mistake, it was only a tiny matter that I doubt people would have noticed. But it’s a blanket for my own baby and it shall be perfect!

So on the knitting needles now is the baby blanket “Det hele kongerige”. It’s a blanket that babies in the Danish Royal family get when born. Here are the twins of Mary and Frederik wrapped in the blanket:

I’m using Dale Baby Ull, it’s really soft and nice. Here is the pattern on Ravelry. I will of course post mine when it’s ready :)

And… we’re having a boy :)

  1. Hi Binga,
    Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your son!!!! H ow exciting. You were our guide this summer for a day trip arranged by Knitting Iceland. Katie and I did have a wonderful time and talk about it often. I finished the jumper I knit with the lett lopi and I was very pleased with it. My next project will be the lopapesa from the platt lopi. (I know I can’t spell those names).

    I think the sheep bumps may be called cattle guards in English but I could be wrong. Take care

    Hi Beth! I remember our trip, it was great :) I’m glad your sweater turned out good, you’ll find it interestingly different to knit with the plötulopi but it’s very nice :) All the best to you and Katie!

  3. Haven’t stopped on for quite awhile! Happy to read about the expected little one. Hope allis well!
