Some baby knits

After taking about 6 weeks off from not knitting (you guys couldn't tell could you) and very little blogging, I have some works in progress to show to you.

First up is the Harvey Kimono from Natural Knits for Baby and Mom by Louisa Harding.
I am in the process of seaming, afterwards I need to add a garter stitch neck edging and sew on the buttons.
Pattern Specs so far:
Yarn : Sirdar Snuggly DK
Needles: 2.75 mm and 3.25 mm - note this is 3 sizes smaller than the pattern suggests.

Next project on the needles is the Baby Soft Cardigan in the Knitters Book of Yarn
I am using Rowan Cotton Rope in turquoise and white.
I am enjoying this cotton yarn, but it is hard to make neat increases. There is one increase that is really bugging me, and I think I will have to fix it. I kept denying it to myself, but I think I will be happier once it is fixed.

The advantages of a fall baby - I know that these will fit sometime in the winter (for how long though is a different matter).
