I’m in love with quick baby knits. Often the sewing projects I work on are so involved and time consuming, that whipping up a cute baby sweater for Angela seems like a welcome break.
So earlier this month I stopped by by local yarn shop, Knit & Knot, to find yarn for a new project, Little Sister’s Dress by Tora Froseth Design. It’s available as a free download on Ravelry. The pattern is worked from the top down and is seamless. For those of you who don’t knit, those are two pattern elements that make the knitting very fast and easy. The yarn I chose is Heritage Silk Paints from Cascade Yarns. I love the changing colors as the pattern makes its way around.
I haven’t spent much time on the project, but I’m already nearly done with the yoke. From there the project will go quickly because it will just be a simple knit stitch until I get to the end.
I’m knitting it in the three to six month size, because that’s how big my little peanut should be in a month or so. Insert sad face here. She’s getting so big so fast. But that also gives me plenty of time to get the sweater dress done so she an wear it for a while before we move her up to an even bigger clothing size.
Any other quilters that double as knitters out there? What’s on your needles?
