Sometimes I really am impressed by my own knitting.
The sweater now sits in the blocking bowl.
I thought my blocking bowl pictures were getting a little boring, so I taped my zombie to the side of the bowl to make it more exciting. Zombies make everything more exciting. I need more zombies in my knitting.
I have decided it is time to finally show off the Weasley sweaters I knit my family for Christmas. After all, it is February. Since Sweet Pea is the only child home with me right now, I suppose you get to see her sweater first. This blog really is starting to look like only have one child isn't it.
*hangs head in shame*
Note to self = duct tape older children to a wall so they will hold still for pictures so you can look like a more competent loving mother.
That should work!
Yarn: White acrylic yarn I canibalized from a store bought sweater.
Needles: Size 5 Addi Turbos
Modifications: None necessary, this pattern was flawless.
Review: This designer is quickly becoming one of my favorite knitwear designers for little girl sweaters. Her patterns have a simple timeless quality with a surprising attention to detail. Look how flawlessly the raglan increases transition to cables and then to the lace pattern.
I also love the rolled edging.
It rolls just enough to be interesting without overwhelming the edge. So smart!
The entire sweater is just cute.
Oops, I might have been talking about my daughter just now. Such a cheesy little poser! She positioned herself like that. I would never do anything so JC Penny Portrait Studios.
At the end of our photo session we were photobombed by cheeta.
After my frogging binge yesterday I found myself with a drawer full of empty needles. Predictably I cast of for a new pair of socks...
Which were also photo bombed by cheeta. Who taught that cheeta (aka Sweet Pea) to photo bomb?
I think I'm going to have to have a talk with the zombie.
