I love the rare occasions when I can do some baby knitting and this is no exception :-) I was delighted when I knew that this particular friend was having a baby boy, and although I knitted the back, fronts and sleeves of this a few weeks ago, I didn't knit the band and finish it off until after he had safely arrived.
This is Devan from Spring '04 Knitty. I used Opal Magic Sugar Almond Blue and a contrast ball of Regia sock yarn.
I used mattress stitch for the first time when sewing in the sleeves, but I'm afraid the navy yarn defeated my poor old eyes, and I sewed the side and sleeve seams in my usual way.
It took me ages to sew up - almost as long as it did to knit! Isn't knitting for a knitter just the most daunting thing!
This little hat and socks are a Sue Morgan pattern. You will have to scroll down to see it.
