It's February, so that means birthday sweaters for the grand niece & nephew -- they're 4 this year! (Easy to remember, since they were born on my birthday, and it was a round number that year)
First up is Bane's Skull & Crossbones sweater. He's usually ambivalent about the sweaters I make, but this one was definitely a hit! Pattern is on Ravelry here.
Mia was not as thrilled this year -- she put the sweater on and said "it's too big" and immediately wanted it off! Actually, I think it's pretty much a perfect fit... but she's 4. The pattern is called Skinny Cotton Pullover, and it was quick and easy construction.
And -- a bit of background for this one. My sister lives in Tasmania and raises pigs, among other things. So when I saw this kit at Morehouse Farms for an Oink Scarf, I had to make it as a gift for her! The 300 rounds of stockinette were boring,but I love the details --
I'm off to Empty Spools soon for a workshop with Susan Carlson and some sea air...
