March Baby Sweater

Here is my free pattern for March - it looks like I am really doing this AND NaKnitSweMoDo! I wonder how long I can hold on, but for now, project #3 and pattern #3.

March Baby Sweater

This baby sweater is worked in one piece from the top down. The yoke is worked back and forth to create the slit, while the body and the sleeves are worked in the round.

I used one skein of LuLu's Yarns Supersock Merino DK (330 yards) and I had literally 2 yards left - if the prospect of running out of yarn keeps you up at night, buy 2 skeins (you can always make socks with the second one!)

Let's count this as sweater #2


Even if I am not happy with it at all. I made this sweater because it reminded me of Silana (Ravelry link), that is my favorite sweater ever. I should have stick to the original. I do not like the length of the sleeves and it does not have enough waist shaping. Nothing I can't fix, in fact I did not even weave in the ends and I wore for a while on Friday, just to test. The length of the sleeves drove me crazy, they kept rinding up my elbow. So, major adjustments soon - If I lengthen the sleeves, I would want to lengthen the body as well, do while I am at ut, I will add more waist shaping.
One day.

The fastest de-stashing trick I know? My mom.
While she claims she does not have time to knit at home, here she relax and knit - she is going through my Karabella Aurora 8 stash like there is no tomorrow.

Hot and Cold

Hot and Cold

Can’t decide if you like cool or warm colors? Use them all in this rainbow shawl!
Knit from side to side, with the yarn held triple and a knit-on lace border, it is a fast and enjoyable knit.

The pattern uses about 7,000 yards of lace yarn held triple. If you plan to make a solid color shawl, that is all you’ll need.
