Once the Queen Bean made it clear she would put up with my photographic shenanigans no longer I turned to my knitting.
I've recently made a sweater for Sweet Pea. She came home from school one day and declared her favorite color was now BLUE. And could I dye her hair blue, and could I knit her a blue sweater?
I told her I didn't have any blue hair dye, but I did have blue yarn.
So one blue sweater I knit.
All I had to do was sew in the ends, and add buttons. She choose the cutest round yellow buttons as a contrast to the plain blue sweater. Now I just need to block it.
Right after I pry it off her body.
And since the button tin was out I pulled out some buttons for a sweater I knit Queen Bean earlier this year. It just needed buttons to be all done. I'd even blocked it at some unknown time.
I really suck at follow through don't I.
Unfortunately for the Queen, once her sweater had buttons I required another photo shoot.
A cute baby's work is never done. She shall have her revenge at 3 am.
She wasn't feeling another shoot by the tree.
But once we moved to the upstairs hallway she was all for it.
Yarn: Leftover cotton from my Dream Stripes Shawl
Needles: No idea, maybe size 5, that's what the pattern recommends.
Modifications: None that I recall.
This sweater is seriously cute.
I was unsure if I was going to like how the front is higher than the back.
But I think it works.
I also love the little lace detail.
I think my original plan was to knit this sweater for the three younger girls, and then the adult version for myself and Pork Chop. But then I remembered that I am bound by the laws of the natural universe. I only have so many hours in a day, and I would like to sleep at some point.
So one tiny 12 month size sweater will have to do for now.
I know! Look at her standing. I am so not ready for this.
And here's the sweater in action.
My favorite part of this is the dog photo bomb. She knows she is not allowed upstairs.
