Pattern: Little Cabled Wrap Sweater from Sublime The Eighth Little Handknit Book 649.
Size: 6-12 months
Yarn: Dazzle, 2 balls (310 metres each)
Needles: 3.25mm and 4mm and a cable needle
I really enjoyed this pattern and the cables really show up well in this color. I would knit this pattern again one day as it would be great for winter. I am hoping on Tuesday that when I give it to Felix that it fits over his head (babies have such large heads for little people dont they).
Next up is the Fisherman's Pullover. I really absolutely love this pattern and it is so easy to memorise.
Pattern: Fisherman's Pullover from 60 Quick Baby Knits
Yarn: Dazzle, 2 balls (310 metres each) forest green
Needles: 3.5mm and 4mm and cable needle
Size: 12-18 months
I have really enjoyed each of these knits. This one might be going to 1 of my nephews in New South Wales so hopefully he might get a bit of wear out of it this winter before it starts to warm up.
I also started a garter stitch dress for a 12-18 month old to use up some Panda Magnum Soft in a light gray color from the book Just Baby by Rowan. The pattern is called Swift and is all in garter stitch. I thought the older size would be good as they dont start walking until around 10 months and up and it uses up more yarn that way. I have nearly knit up 1 ball already so I am hoping by tonight to be up to the armhole shaping. I have some other projects that have been sewn up but need buttons attached so they will be posted on here shortly.
Paul is away for a week and a half doing some more work up bush, Lachlan has started his uni course, Isabelle has gone back to school and I have returned to my job too so things are a bit rushed at the moment but all good.
I have been doing a bit of knitting whilst watching podcasts which is great, just like watching tv but it is about knitting. After a while they seem like friends who pop by to visit. I am hoping to hop onto a google VKN where you can actually sit down in front of the camera, knit and chat to lots of other knitters around the world. I hopped on one a few weeks ago but didnt really enter into the conversation as I was a bit late. Anyway that is it for now, have to get some ironing done and put the roast chicken on for dinner soon.
Hope you all have a very lovely week!
