Argyle Cardi


This little gem is for a friend’s brand new baby boy. Hope she doesn’t mind its late arrive (the sweater, not the baby – he was spot on time). The pattern is Debbi Bliss (6-9 mo. size) and the yarn is Lion Brand Microspun, which I love – machine washable and really soft. I’m working the sleeves magic loop, 2 at a time and may add a couple stripes to each, just for fun.
It’s a quick knit that I should have finished by now. Oh the horror of being a procrastinator…

Halloween is upon us…

This year my gorgeous niece wanted a Cinderella costume. The basic dress pattern was Butterick 4630, though I altered it a bit and added the bustle from Butterick 3236. The cape was made using McCall’s 4703 combined with the collar from B4630. Obviously I am very good at making things far more complicated than necessary…
