Finally! I can post this!
The reason things have been so quiet around here is that all my knitting time has been devoted to finishing a cardigan and matching hat. One of my coworkers and his wife are expecting their first baby this fall. He’s taking a new job to be home with the kiddo so I had to quickly finish the set to get it to him today. I didn’t want to post anything about the project until I had given it so it could still be a surprise.
So now… the big reveal!
Sorry for the poor picture quality. I was trying to snap the shots last night while dealing with an injured and very drugged out dog.
Look! The buttons are turtles. I was determined to have teal buttons to match the yarn.
The sweater pattern is Buttons Cardigan #606.
The hat is the Myshka Tuque except I did the edge in garter stitch so it would match the sweater.
The yarn is Debbie Macomber’s Wild Meadow in color Juneau.
The pattern was very easy to work. It’s knit top down in one piece with a garter stitch edge.
Overall, I was incredibly pleased with this set (although I’m worried the hat is too big) and I hope the parents-to-be get good use out of it.
