I’ve been doing some baby knitting in the last few weeks. A very good friend is having a baby girl. I should be mature and wait to blog it until the baby is born and it’s gifted, but I just can’t wait!!!
Yes, this is for a little girl. Her mom isn’t wild about pink, but I’m pretty sure the pearls and lace will make their point!
This was such a fun, easy sweater to knit. The pattern is Sunnyside and it’s a free pattern on Ravelry. The other thing that makes this such a great pattern is that it is knit with one skein of sock yarn. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Lightweight in the Sky Blue colorway. It felt pretty soft while I was knitting it, but now that it’s blocked, it’s really soft!!!
I love the picot hem on the sleeves and the hem of the sweater itself.
And of course, every girl needs pearls!!!
And, because I’m loving Minnesota in the summer, a photo of one of my pots of flowers.
