|I literally bound off the sleeve minutes before trying to get little T to model her new sweater for me. Okay, I bribed her with a cookie, but she certainly did not stand still for any of the photos. This is the same sweater from last week's Yarn Along. This time I used almost two full skeins of Plymouth Encore Colorspun. Although I used the exact same needles, this sweater came out much larger than the red one knit with Berroco Vintage Worsted. I call this sweater the chubbymaker. It makes little T look well, not so little. I didn't do any knit gauge. I just cast on and went with it.|
It's amazing how different yarns of the same weight knit up completely differently. I am partial to the red sweater.
|She will grow into it although the neck opening is already too small.|
|Temporarily, I used a stitch marker to keep it together. Can you see that little light blue plastic safety pin?|
|Here's the back of the Chloe shrug. I knit it a lot longer than the pattern notes. I really enjoy knitting with Spud&Chloe|
yarn! The colors are vibrant, soft and perfect for children's things!
As for reading, I just started The Forgotten Garden last night. This novel is for next month's book club. It was very late, after midnight, when I opened the book.
So, needless to say, I know I read less than five pages. Now, I'm trying to decide what to knit next. Maybe the Easter eggs?
