Now that said news is out and on the Internets, I can finally share that project I alluded to last week (but was afraid to show you because I knew someone would guess why I was knitting it).
Pattern: Little Bubbles (Ravelry link) by the Knit Picks Design Team, 6-12 month size
Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Sport (75% pima cotton, 25% acrylic), colorways Seafoam, Planetarium, Ivory, Marlin, and Jalapeno (one skein or less each)
Needles: US 2 (2.75 mm) Addi Turbo circs
Started/Completed: June 7/June 19
Mods: I added extra rows to the striped section of the body for added length
In spite of the many, many color changes and resulting abundance of ends to weave in -- I joked with The Mister that only for my child would I make something with so many ends to weave in -- this was a very fun knit. The "bubbled" yoke is my favorite part because of the wonderful texture.
The Mister thinks it's a cute sweater, but he was most impressed by the inside, so I have to show you this "guts" shot. The one-row stripes do make for an attractive wrong side!
After finishing this up, I had to make a trip over to Natural Stitches to get some more baby-friendly yarn for the next round of sweaters. If there's one thing I can say about baby garments, it's that they sure do knit up quickly! I have a feeling there will be quite a few little things on this blog in the months to come.
