While looking for the March 2006 issue of Creative Knitting magazine I came across the Premier Issue September 2004 and remembered making this baby set. Well, I found it in a knitting bag of UFO's! All I had left to do was set the sleeves and add the button, done!I used Bernat Softee Baby..............yes, my favorite baby acrylic.
But there were a few mistakes in the pattern and I emailed the magazine back in 2004 and they sent the corrections , you can find them here.
I made the sweater first but as I continued to knit the set, I discovered a problem with the booties pattern.
rows 14-20: Beg with a purl row, work in stockinette stitch
rows 21-24: Knit
rows 25-28: K 3, P3 rep across
rows 29-32: P3, K3 rep across
rows 33-36: Knit
I don't remember exactly why I had to change the row sequence but it worked!
In the meantime I finished these booties a few weeks ago while I had to sit and wait for someone. They are from the book 50 Baby Booties to Knit by Zoe Mellor. Page 109 Lacey Leaf Booties. I used Bernat Softee Baby ( again! ) in the color "prettiest pink", great pattern, I love the edging!
I started another new project, I'll post my progess soon!
