What was your source for this knitting project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo The Ella & The Grady Sleep Sacks
What materials did you use? Fingering weight superwash merino yarn (380-450 yards depending on which of the two patterns you use). Size US 2 and 3 needles, stitch markers, and cable need (for Ella Sack).
What are you most proud of? I'm really proud that for the first several months, Ella lived in this sack. She loved it and other babies are now enjoying them, too! I've even had mothers tell me that people have asked to buy their sleep sack right off the baby!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? I recommend that you stick with a semi-solid or solid for the Ella Sack to show off the cable. However, if you want to have fun and play with the different sock/fingering weight yarns that are out there and super fun, make a Grady Sack. I give yard amounts in the pattern, but if you want it super fun. Disclaimer: You are responsible for the health and safety of your child and should not leave baby unattended while in sack. You can purchase the pattern in my BrownieKnits Craftsy shop, the Brownie Knits Ravelry shop, my Etsy store at etsy.com/shop/brownieknits, and at BrownieKnits.com.
