My second post for today is a hooded baby sweater that I got from here. It is a simple but very cute baby sweater. The original pattern called for worsted weight yarn. Since I use sport weight acrylic yarn, I have changed the needle size to 5.00 mm and cast on 75 stitches instead of 48 stitches. I also knitted these Magic Slippers :
I just love knitting these tiny and cute projects.
Are these for my baby...you may ask!? Oh no...I am too old for that! It is for my friendly hair stylist, Candy. Her second baby girl is due for delivery anytime now! So excited for her! :)
I have always thought of knitting a shawl but I was thinking would I ever use it? When I saw this beautiful Swallowtail shawl...I knew that I just can't wait anymore.
The yarn is my own hand spun and hand dyed Pomegranate which I have over dyed with more red. I have used almost 475 metres of this 2 ply BFL yarn. The size of the shawl is 23" x 54" after blocking. It is very soft and light.
I love this shawl very much. Wonder why I have waited for such a long time to knit my first shawl! :) I guess more shawls will coming too! Hmm....I am thinking of Ishbel!
