Baseball Jacket

There aren't really any little people in our family right now. This is OK with me as DD has plenty of time before starting one of her own! However, I find knitted things for little people absolutely charming. They're almost as good as socks...small, portable, a good place to try stitch patterns and, in addition, darned cute.

I do, however, have neighbors with two little ones...a 2 yr. old girl and a 6 mo. old boy. They don't mind at all being the recipients of random acts of cuteness!

I fell (hard) for Toddlers to Tots (and Babies to Toddlers), by Melissa. These patterns are among the cutest on the planet. I decided to knit up the Baseball Jacket for the little guy. This is approximately 12 mos. size. I swatched and adapted the stitch counts accordingly. The yarn is a superwash aran-weight, called Real McCoy, and is mighty stretchy stuff. I like this yarn so much, that I may get some more to make the poncho for his big sister.
