Happy Birthday, little friend

The friend in question is growing up in a super fun, amazingly colorful — some might say psychedelic — household. His parents took down their backyard zipline so they could put in a climbing wall. Giant gardens, lots of bonfires, a million choices of tea.

In sum, his family’s a total hoot. I often wish we lived closer.

Hence this sweater.

I ended up knitting this on 11s instead of 10s. I wanted the knit to be loose for the spring rather than tight and bulky for winter. That might have been a misstep; it’s a bit big.

One skein did it. Here’s all that remained.
