I thought I'd start a blog in the new year. As you'll read on my 'about' page, I'm a little bit of a flaky crafter. I love starting projects; so much in fact that I have a hard time finishing one before starting another. I thought that if people kept tabs on me, I'd make an effort to commit.
I completed this little sweater for my son, Rowan, a few months ago. It's also doubling as my blog title photo because the colours are wonderful. During my pregnancy I knitted quite a few baby items, but since we were keeping the gender a surprise, I didn't venture into any colours except for red, green and white.
I love the stripe up the sleeve. It's so cute, I think I may knit him another for next winter. I used the pattern in Marie Connolly's book 'The Expectant Knitter'. I've knitted quite a few items from it, definitely worth the purchase! You can also purchase the pattern on Ravelry, just search for her name.
I had some yarn left over, so I thought I'd knit a cozy hat. Rowan is trying it on for size before I finish it :)
