Yarn Along (no.17)

by Josée

I’ve found that it has been trickier to join Ginny’s yarn along the last couple weeks. I’ve given up daytime computer for Lent and by the time the evening comes along I’ve felt too tired to blog.

I finished Sweetpea’s dress but I still need to find (or make) a cute head band for her to wear with the dress. I’ll post a picture of her dress soon…

I told myself that when I’d finish the dress I’d knit something for Monkey. Initially I wanted to knit him a vest for Easter, but I didn’t find any vest that appealed to me (if you know of a particularly cute little boy vest let me know!). In the end, I picked up another pattern for Sweetpea. It’s an adorable tee designed by Georgie Hallam: Sorello. The yarn that I’m going to use for this project is Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash in turquoise.

This week I’m reading two books Love on Assignment and Made from Scratch.

What a cute picture! Have you seen the Milo, Boy's Waistcoat and Pembroke vests on Ravelry? Maybe one of them appeals to you?

Milo vest is a quick knit.

I nicknamed my baby sweet pea too, lol! I would have to agree with house full of jays too on the vest choices. I am making a Milo for my two year old right now. It is a nice knit and would be lovely in your yarn!

Oh! That face is too adorable!
And that blue yarn – I can't wait to see what you make with it. It looks so squishy warm. (Is that an appropriate description?)
Happy Knitting!
