Idun for Baby {Finished!}

I find dressing my baby enjoyable and frustrating at the same time. It is not the easiest task especially in cold weather. She is spending her days playing on the play mat, so lately, knitted vests and dresses are the most practical garmets in my daighter's wardrobe. 
I have completed the Idun dress I showed you a few weeks before. I really loved working on this project and also love the result. It keeps warm Palma and I receive lot of compliments. I used Drops Baby Merino yarn, which is easy to knit with and ideal for baby garmets. This yarn is sold also on a reasonable price, so I will be less sad when she grows out the dress, The contrasting yarn is a one-stranded, hand spunned and hand dyed leftover I used for a previous project. 
The pattern is well-written, the isntructions are easy to follow. I followed the smallest size, it turned out a 74/80 (6-12 mo) sized dress. I haven't been with the i-cord cast-on and cast-off, so I started the dress with a provisional cast-on and let the neckline opened to decide the edging later. Anyway, after completing the arms with the i-cord cast-off convinced me that the method actually works, so I returned to the neck and casted off that way. 

You might remember this vest I have made for her while expecting. It still fits! I was afraid that she would grow out before the colder weather. I think this dress is also big enough and she can wear it through months.

Chevron Baby Blanket {Finished!}

I am a little bit behind with my finished works. Firstly, I would like to show you my Chevron Baby Blanket. This is the second blanket I made for Palma.
I have completed the blanket a few weeks before, it have been on my needles just for a couple weeks: started in September, finished in October.  I haven't followed any pattern or color scheme and altered the strands randomly. There are exactly 48 rows from each color, so despite the randomness, the result is balanced.
I used Drops Cotton Light yarn in colorways 01, 05, 18 and 28. It is great yarn for baby projects, since it has Oeko-Tex certificate, quite easy to work with, doesn't require special care and it is on a great price. 
 Palma really loves the garter stitch, she plays with her fingers pushing between the stitches.
