Just a wee bit of proof that I have been knitting.


Pattern: Pirate Sweater by Zoe Mellor, available in Adorable Knits for Tots
Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft DK in Poppy and Thunder, Rowan Cashcotton in White
Needles: US 4 and US 6 24″ Addi Turbos

And I do mean wee, it sized for a 6-12 month old. I made the sweater as a baby shower gift for two recovering goth parents and it was the first large-ish scale intarsia I’ve done. The pattern calls for Rowan Handknit Cotton or in my opinion what people who enjoy pain use when doing intarsia. I opted for the Cashsoft and Cashcotton for ease of use and more colour options.

    That thing is even cuter in person! I can’t wait to see pics of it on the little guy. 🙂 When are you going to show the Lupine (sp?) Lace socks? You’ve made some great progress on them!
