My first for my last ;)
My Grand mother taught me when I was about 8. I loved doing that with her when I was a kid. But events in our life had me stop a project whil it was on the needles, and forgot all a bout it. Longies have been the starting point of me knitting again (after finding that forgotten project still on the needles after my Grand ma passed away.) And then, I have knitted tons of things in the last few years. But I had not yet tackled shirts/cardigans.
I didn't know what pattern to try first, and I ended up trying this one. It was a good one to start with. Fast knit, easy pattern, and really cute on it's own
let alone on an adorable baby ;)
the only thing left is putting the buttons
and blocking the whole thing.
I used cascade eco yarn for this project. I like it good enough, but I think I would have rather something with a little silk in it. The eco yarn is very economical though, so definetly something to keep in mind!
off to make some boxes!
