Preparation Knitting

Our baby girl is due two weeks from today (feel free to show up any time, little one!) and I have knit a few things for her this summer. Below is the Smocked Dress from 60 Quick Baby Knits. I used Cascade Yarn's Ultra Pima, which is a sport-weight yarn. The pattern calls for worsted weight, but I always knit larger than gauge, so this time I just went with it. 

The finished dress seems to be about the right size for a 6- to 9-month-old, so our little girl will most likely be sporting this in the spring over cute long-sleeved tees.
