Striped Bambino Outfit and Knitted Nightcap

I had to knit my little Bambino boy an outfit. I used a wonderful blend of mohair and silk for his romper and booties. For the cardigan and nightcap I used a self striping sock yarn. I just love the way the two yarns work together. The outfit is "Balbutiement" GL 1935. I purchased the pattern from Inma Iglesias.

The nightcap is from a 1951 pattern that was in the November 1951 LSDS magazine and was called "Premier bonnet pour Bambino," I worked the pattern up myself and will have that posted as a free e-pattern as soon as I type it up. I just love this little Bambino. This one that is pictured is painted by Anne Luree.
