There is nothing quite like knitting for a baby. Your own baby at that. I did my fair share whilst pregnant, and took people’s advice and tried to knit projects in a range of sizes so that my baby-to-be would not out grow them in a few months! Louella has slowly been working through them, and in the past few weeks I have been SO excited that she finally fits into her Sheepy Yoke cardi! Remember this one? I took the Tulip Yoke Baby Cardigan and traded the tulips for sheep. You can find more details and a copy of my chart in this post. I’m so enjoying these cooler days for which knitwear is right at home!
I had to rip back once more but, after three hoods and two button bands, my current design for Little Woolens is finally off the needles! I swiftly cast on another one (actually just a girly version to that hoodie) and as you can see have already ripped back once as after two inches of 2×2 rib I realised I had cast on the wrong size. Blurgh. This design is cursed, I’m sure of it.
