Black knits

First for a newborn:

A gift for a new relative. Knitted with 2 mm needles of a yarn in wool blend (about 170 g). Size is about 56 cm, but the sleeves and legs have “pockets” that can be turned open and arms and feet have more room to grow :) And so that the new overall doesn’t need to be washed immediately, I also made a whole bunch of matching bibs:

The second black knit is a bolero for me:

Cashmere-wool blend with 2 mm needles. Simple moss stitch. Studs on the shoulders were meant to give a rock look, but the cables on the borders actually gave it a bit of a matador look :D
