i'm sure i'm the most excited about it, and i'm really hoping he doesn't get too warm in school today, but I didn't care. hahaha I wanted him wearing a hand knit already.
i love this time of year, as crazy as it gets for us knitters... our minds are flying a mile a minute, trying to figure how quickly we can get all of those hand knits done in time for the holidays. of course, now that owen is in school, i've been thinking about a gift for his teacher too! goodness i have to be on the ball this year!
but for now, let's enjoy his sweater, shall we? i'm so glad i have that crossed off my list. and i'm glad that the sweater worked out to be a tad big. these kiddos need room to grow!
and i really do love how it fits him. xo
he loves the sweater, and i know he'll be warm in it. this makes my heart so very happy!
this pic is a bit over exposed, but i love it still :).. and it helps to show the detail of the sweater. xo
so just a quick recap of this project:
pattern: fisherman's pullover by Veera Välimäki
yarn: cascade eco + in heathered purple. (less than 1 skein)
needle: 5.5mm and 6.0mm
mods: i knitted the sleeves in the larger needle as i felt they were a little snug. the rest of the sweater i did in the smaller needle as owen has a pretty skinny torso.
this is the second time i've knit this sweater, and i'm sure there will be a few more in the future. i love how quick it knits up. the instructions are clear, and i absolutely love the result! and bonus, i had a sweater done for the sskal. (even if it wasn't my size) xo
