Abbey Twin Set

I've always wanted to make a baby's twin set. They're so classic and formal, and I love them in old photographs, especially on boys. I'm stowing this one for a Christmas present, for one of the many new babies I've met this year.

The pattern is from that baby book I'm so in love with, made with (Rowan 4ply soft) yarn I got in the Liberty sale this year. I splurged on a few colors, so stay for that ambitious project I was telling you about in the last post.

I'm calling my creation the "Abbey Twin Set", after a teeny tiny cat I used to look after in South London. Abbey meowed all day and all night. Needless to say, this pattern was a lot less trouble.
