I started this kicking bag just before my nephew Henry was born, in fact I knitted quite a lot of it while my sister was in labour.
I had been saving this lovely sock yarn for a special project, so this well & truly hit the mark.
Thanks to the fantastic Purl Bee tutorial I finished it using kitchener stitch. It's far from perfect, but if done well it creates a lovely seamless finish, I think the secret is in getting the tension right.
I I liked this project, although I think next time I would swap the mini cable for 2x2 rib. It was quite a monotonous knit, but it's handy to have a project you can pick up without having to think about where you are up to & I think the finished project is a very sweet baby gift.
For a very sweet babe.
For all the project details head to Ravelry.
