Little Man, What Now?
And so we come to the end of another WIP. Lillie's Little Sweater (Cottage Creations' latest hit) is finished.
It really is cute. And quick. In the 6 month size, the pattern calls for 430 yards of worsted weight yarn. on size 7s. I used a slightly fuzzy ack and wool (80/20, I think) blend. Long discontinued. It's called Fluffy. ABM made it.
The sweater is knitted from the front cuff of the hood, over the top of the head, to the neck, then down to the hem. There are tips on making it in sizes for dolls through about 3 years. I think I'll leave off the hood and add a cable up the front on the next one. Or maybe add a little intarsia motif or some stripes. I will be making this one again.
And on another note. The Mary Maxim catalog arrived today. If you got one too, please look through it and tell me if there's anything at all worthwhile. I couldn't get past the plastic canvas stuff on the back cover.
And another: I received "A personal invitation to join the knitting elite." Yep, Vogue Knitting. I'll be sending my regrets.
Also: Crafter's Choice wants me back. they miss me. Problem is, there's only one book that they have that I want. I think I'd rather Barnes and Noble it!
I love that sweater! Must order more patterns from Cottage Creations -- they're great and I haven't talked to them in a couple of years.Post a Comment
