some old FOs

i was cruising around on my computer looking for a file when i turned up some pics of old finished objects i thought i'd share. the first is a child's sweater made for a friend's newest boy bouncer. this friend of mine is a baby machine. my age and 4 kids - it stresses me out just to think about it.



pattern: child's placket neck pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
yarn: cascade quattro (100% peruvian wool) - kind of tweedy orange yellow
needles: size 7 bamboo circs
buttons: cheap little yellow circles picked up at Joann fabrics
overall: great pattern - easy to follow, easy to knit. i would definitely make this again, although i would do it with a different yarn. i had the cascade in my stash so i figured what the hell, but i think for a child's sweater the yarn should be softer and less grown up. i do, however, love the fabric the quattro makes and would knit with it again. in fact, i've still got another hank or 2 in the stash...
p.s. photos of this sweater taken by a truly amazing artist - check her out here.

the other FO is one of the first things i knit and gave away - a simple garter stitch scarf made with 3 skeins of Noro Kureyon on size 8 needles. To make: cast on ~30 stitches. RS: K; WS: K, repeat until desired length. BO all stitches. add fringe. email me with your questions - sure there will be lots!!

more to come when my schedule frees up a little. hope everyone out there is having a beautiful day!
