On the needles: Blu

What's better for kid-like action than a pair of blue jeans? How about a pair of knitted cotton denim blue jeans for a bitty baby boy that's on his way?

For another colleague who is expecting this spring (there really must be something in the water), I'm working on Blu, itty bitty blue jeans for itty bitty kids. They're done up in Rowan Denim, an all-cotton yarn that mellows, softens, and fades in the wash just like real blue jeans. It also shrinks in the first wash like real blue jeans, but shrinkage is figured into the pattern.

That's the right leg in the photo. I've got the left leg finished now, and they've both been through the wash and are drying. Next comes the embroidery, and maybe some knitted high-top sneakers by way of booties to match.

That's funny I was just looking at this pattern on Ravelry and thinking how cute it was. It's a great idea, can't wait to see it finished.
