and i'm making the larger size as he will grow into it, and i knew i'd be late in getting it done. and also... i'm hoping he'll slow down in the growing thing for a little while, so we can enjoy him wearing it ;) haha. though we'll see! i've been told he's already wearing 9 month sized clothing, and he was only born in january!
the pattern? gramps cardigan by kate oates. i'm knitting this in knit picks swish dk, and it's so very soft! this is the first time i've ever ordered yarn online.. and it's a scary thing for me, because i like to be able to touch the yarn before i buy it.. but i'm not disappointed in the least. it helps that my knit night girls have all ordered from knit picks before, and i've seen their yarn :) haha.
i'm using a 3.5mm and a 4.0mm needle.
and so far... i love how it looks.
what do you think?
sometimes i forget how much i enjoy doing cables... it's nice to be reminded of it. the next step will be to find the perfect buttons to go along with it... i want something kind of grown up.. to go with the gramps style.. ya know? any tips? any fave places to scope out for buttons??
what's on your needles these days? have you knitted this cardi before? once it's done, i'll have lots more notes to share, but in the meantime, let's just look at the pretty cables, ok? xo
