I’ve finished a project! Yay! It’s a pretty cute one, too.
It’s actually a double project. A family friend who has a little one the same age as my boy, is expecting a baby girl just about any day now. I had some extra yarn and I love an excuse to make a baby sweater. (Seriously, they’re so fun and fast!) I whipped up a tiny little Flax Light for the little one. (Can I extol the virtues of this pattern again? 1. It’s well-written and free! 2. It comes in literally all the sizes. 3. It’s reversible! One less thing to have to fuss with while getting the little guys dressed.)
I found some matching red yarn in my stash, too. I thought I’d make a red sweater for the big brother! How cute would that be? But it turned out I didn’t have nearly enough for a toddler-sized sweater. Thus, I ended up with a stripey sweater, which, honestly, I like better than if it had been a solid color. It looks like the kind of sweater a little boy wears as he runs around the neighborhood getting into trouble.
After some whining about weaving in ends, I finished it up, and now the pair are all wrapped up and ready to be delivered.
I know the kids won’t really care about them, but I bet their parents will appreciate them. And I think they turned out super cute!
Have you been working on any gift knitting lately?
