A Cardigan for Bear

I have been working on this a while, it is the first garment I have knit and I am so stupidly proud of myself!

My little Bear man loves it, and the yarn is gorgeous, 100% merino by Amy Butler. My Ravelry notes are here. I am totally loving Ravelry, and knitting! Have you joined in the thread swap foolery yet? The link is at the top of my side bar, hurry hurry!

  2. Gosh and so you should be proud, what a delightful little knit for your sweet little boy! I know that feeling when you really "see" what you have made with your hands and head, such a satisfying delight. I love your skitchbook ideas by the way, absolutely stunning indeed xox Penelope

  4. Cute little man in his cardy!!!! Clever mum he has...proud you should be too, lovely to be able to knit (make) clothing for Bear. I'm sure he's going to love wearing that this winter! Sounds like you have the bug Tallulah, the girls will be wanting a jumper too!

    Love your "Trance" cloth and I look forward to seeing how you stitch it.

    1. already cast on one for Boo, it is quite addictive, therapeutic, the cloth has taken a back seat whilst the bigger needles click click click, but it is in my dreams most nights, sooon...
