first of all, thanks so much for your patience for this post :) we've been living a more than busy life these days. seriously. and we're loving it.. but hosting great friends and close family, makes for less computer time. it's just the way it is, and it's a good thing. visiting is totally important...
but on to the post...
why knit one when i can knit two! haha.
it's not that i'm obsessive over this seriously cute pattern. but it's really uber quick and satisfying.
remember the maile sweater i knit upon my dear husband's request? it was super cute.. right? a gorgeous green cardi, with the cutest pink buttons? well guess what.. the recipients had a boy. bahahahah. right? kind of a little detail that's good to know before i break out the sock yarn and tiny needles. hahaha
but don't worry, because there's another work colleague who's having a baby, and they are for certain having a girl. soooo my husband has graciously asked for the girl sweater back, and we'll be giving them this lovely instead.
and the other, it's for none other than my little nephew, zachary. i am very... very late with a gift. but this is worth it. at least i think so ;) hee hee...
i do love this pattern. i've been told it fits small.. babies nowadays are huge though, so i dunno...
pattern: baby sophisticate by linden down.
yarn: lion brand vanna's choice. solids and tweeds.
my thoughts: seriously.. super quick, super easy. very satisfying knit. the size i knit is 6-12 months, for both of them. honestly, i don't think i'd try knitting the smaller size. these little boo's grow up soo fast.. you know?
if you're a newbie knitter, or even an advanced knitter looking for a very simple, mindless knit.. this is a great project! also, the vanna's choice is a great yarn option, because i find it hard wearing, and very easy to care for. it's really the kind of yarn you want to knit with for new foggy minded parents, who are struggling with sleep. the last thing they need is uber special care for clothing... yah know?
and besides, who doesn't love an old man cardi on a little man. cutest. ever.
have you knit this pattern? is it a go-to for you as well? if not, what's your great go-to baby gift knit? i'd love to know! xo
