2nd Secret Knit

I know that you all have been dying to know what the 2nd secret knit is that I posted about here and here.

Drum Roll Please...

It is a baby sleep sack.

Again made for my friend Sam's baby shower last weekend.

The pattern is Owlie Sleep Sack by Teresa Cole.  I used Malabrigo Yarn Rios colorway 866 Acro Iris on size 6 circulars and dpns. It is a superwash Merino yarn that has amazing color repeats as you can see. Again the beauty with this yarn, in addition to the awesome color, is that it is machine washable and makes for a great baby gift.  I would definitely work with this yarn again.  It was really easy to work with and felt great while knitting.

Despite the name, this is not meant for the baby to sleep in unattended.  It is meant to help keep the newborn warm while cuddling with mom or dad.  I can't wait to take pics of the baby in the sleep sack - which I promise, I will post on here!

You can't beat owls!
