a kimono in progress

baby kimono

Sorry for the not-so-great photo, it’s cuter in person! This will be the second kimono I have made from this pattern. The first is in boy colors, so I’m making one in pink now. This is supposed to be part of the “homecoming” outfit. (exciting!) I’m thinking of putting some kind of small appliqué on the front, maybe a little heart or something. The yarn is Berroco Comfort, which is an unusual choice for me since I usually strongly dislike 100% acrylic yarn. Comfort actually reminds me a bit of cotton for some reason (perhaps it’s the strong stitch definition?), only it’s not as heavy.

I’m about 5 months pregnant now (gee, time flies) and things are going smoothly. I’ve still got lots of time to wait, though. The excitement is killing me!


About Jessi

I'm married. I'm a mom of two. I love dogs and almost all other animals. I like to think about things for a long time. I like all crafts (except scrapbooking. ugh.) I like running. I like cooking and baking. I analyze everything. I stress out too much. I like coffee. I love having a husband that tells me to chill out. I'm thankful for a God that loves me in spite of my many failures.

    I have used Comfort a bit and really like it too. And usually I’m wool-only. I still don’t know how it ages and wears, but we’ll see! 🙂

    Nice. You should make a kangaroo outfit for Ryan, so he can carry the baby around in a warm front pouch.
