#1’s Sweater

Done!

  • Yarn: Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes
  • Pattern: Knitting Pure & Simple Child’s Tunic.
  • More details can be found on Ravelry.

#1 had forgotten one of the two (yes, two) sweaters he owned at a playdate, so I worked hard to get this sweater finished quickly. For a knitter’s kid, #1 was sadly deficient in the sweater department. Of course, since the cold weather has persisted, we ended up over at the second hand store the other day to pick up a couple of commercially made sweaters to round out his spring weather wardrobe, but this hand-knit is, by far, my favorite. (Naturally.)

I am still trying to claw my way out of a knitting slump and have been obsessing lately about knitting socks. I’ve enjoyed knitting this sweater and have three seven other sweater projects I want to cast on, but dudes, I need get some smallish projects going first. How about this? Or this? And maybe this? Well, onward it is!

  1. It’s lovely. the colors are fun, and it looks incredibly comfy. I hope #1 loves it too!

    I should probably get back to work on my son’s sweaters….

    :D

  2. I have yet to make myself a sweater, but I’ve made a bunch of kid & baby sweaters. I guess the old saying is true: the cobbler’s children go barefoot. ;) So don’t feel bad that your son had to wait this long for his own sweater from you. ;)

  3. Cool! Looks really nice! Is WOTA soft enough to wear against skin? BTW, I made a sweater for Angus in Swish. It’s gorgeous, other than two backwards cable twists, but I have a feeling it’s going to be too small. If it is, want it?
