Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

So Sweet!


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.

  1. Yup! It’s God’s country!

  2. What a beautiful sweater! I love your choice of buttons. Very feminine without being pink. I think your friend is going to love it! I wish it were in my size- I would definitely wear it!

  3. Pretty sweater – you did a great job!
    Goreous flowers – another great job! And I notice the lawn in back is trimmed and green. impressive. 🙂

  4. Darling, Maria! What size did you knit that used just the one skein of yarn?

  5. It’s perfect, Maria… I love it.
