Rainbow sweater because it is spring

Happy yarn + chilly springs =

Untitled

Really easy knit. I’ve made this pattern before and would make it again. Details here.

The yarn came from a clearance sale bought on purpose for babies.

I wasn’t sure what I’d do with it at the time but picked it up anyway – its cousin made this cardigan for a friend.

The buttons were fished out of the button box. Tried white, black, dark blue. Preferred the rainbow effect.

Just in time, too. Mr. Baby learned last weekend to say “rainbow”.

Also just in time because today it snowed for the second time in a week.

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.
