Maybe with more maturity I will have the patience to knit sweaters. Even knitting children’s sweaters challenges my short knitting attention span. I’m so happy that this sweater is finished I’m posting twice in one day. It’s hot off the presses and is not blocked. I’m not really sure about how to block acrylic blends and I figure her body will block it.
The pattern: Sunday Sweater
The yarn: Garnstudio Drops Cotton Light 60% cotton 40% acrylic. I got this at a great deal. Ravelry now shows it as discontinued.
This yarn was not very splitty. I was pleasantly surprised. I would definitely use it again for children’s clothing. That’s a good thing because I have about four skeins of it in navy blue. Due to the recipients inability to stand still I was only able to get an iphone photo of it being worn.
She really likes it. If I had it to do all over again I would have knit the sleeves to the length that the pattern states, but knitting sleeves is such a drag. I’m hoping it will grow a bit with wear. (One of those lies we knitters tell ourselves).
