For my next knitting project, I would like to make a little sweater for Baby Boy to wear for his blessing at church. My mother made a beautiful silk bubble for Logan when he was blessed, but Logan was a summer baby. The bubble is lightweight and has short sleeves and doesn't cover the legs.
Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down.
Bernat Satin Solid that my mom gave me for Christmas. It is lovely yarn with a subtle pearl-like sheen that I thought would be a nice compliment to the sheen of the silk bubble.
So, here is where you come in...
Should I look for a weightier yarn with a less obvious sheen to knit this sweater, or do you think that for a special occasion, a bit of shine is OK?
And, what do you think would be the best way to cover his wee man legs? I thought about some leggings out of interlock, but I'm afraid they'd look like tights. Maybe tuck the bubble into some wee man pants? If so, what would you make them of? More silk to match, or a light twill or other bottom weight?
Tell me what to do!
