… with another giant, sock-like thing?

This is a very much designed-on-the-fly sleep sack for a little baby who apparently doesn’t quite approve of the current southern hemisphere winter. I’m using the ever-popular Baa-ble Hat pattern for the sheep and stars (snow??), but started the bottom like a gigantic sock toe with a magic CO.

The best thing about baby knits which don’t have to fit is the freedom to do pretty much everything. Stranded! Pictorial motifs! All the colours! In the round! Back and forth! Maybe even intarsia!

Yeah, I’m enjoying myself.

      In my fear of making it too small, I think swerved too far in the other direction; the poor kid is going to be sleeping in it till he leaves for college!
