I didn’t mean to go on a blog break, but sometimes life throws you some curve balls that include going away on a family emergency for a few months. everything is ok now, but I needed the last couple of weeks to just regroup and get used to being in my own home again.* so what was I even knitting or talking about before I left?
these poor sweaters had been sitting on my kitchen table for months, basically since I took that photo. I finally mailed it to Stef a week or two ago and crossed my fingers that Mazie didn’t already outgrow them AND that they would actually be IN their envelope. thankfully they arrived safe and sound, unlike the pants I mailed before, and she still has room to grow.
pattern: child’s placket neck pullover from lmkg
yarn: koigu kersti (k-613), 3 skeins
needles: 4.5mm circs
I never got any progress posts on this sweater since it moved off the needles so quickly. I can see this one becoming my standard baby knitted gift and will probably knit a few more during the holidays this year. this was my first time using kersti, though it had been in my stash for years. it has a rounder and squishier feel than their sock yarn that I really enjoyed.
pattern: vintage baby cardigan, shibuiknits
yarn: my own sock yarn (wool/nylon blend)
needles: 2.5mm circs
apparently Mazie likes the kimono more than the pullover. I guess this means she’s a minimalist and garter stitch will be her favorite stitch when she grows up. or maybe it’s the loud colors that have her jumping up and down. I don’t mind either way, as long as she’s happy.
