Yesterday Brian and I spent the afternoon with our friends Kris, Kyia, and Aunders. It was hot, and a great day to be on the water.
Perpetual Shawl from the Fall 2012 Knitscene. Here's an in progress shot from earlier this week:
To celebrate Aunders' first birthday last week, I knit him a boating sweater. The irony of knitting a child a boating sweater really cracked me up. I knit the 2 year old size, since he is growing so quickly, and I think it turned out great.
Seaside Sweater, which I ended up paying for to get all the sizes. I thought the pattern left something to be desired - the width of the sleeves was too narrow as written and I ripped them out and made up my own. Plus the pattern directed the knitter to graft the sleeves at top of arm - I did a three-needle bind-off. The yarn is Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and I thought it was perfect for this pattern. Very cute!
We're having a great summer, hope you are too!
