Pattern: Moura Headband

Yarn: Cascade Eco+ in 8511 Valentine (left over from SweetP’s Latte Baby Coat)

Notes: A nice little pattern for a very quick knit that uses a tiny amount of yarn.  I really love this headband and wear it multiple times a week.  I’m thinking I need to make some more like it because not everything in my wardrobe goes with red.  It’s great for disguising I-haven’t-showered-in-a-couple-of-days hair.  Also good for toddler silliness.

Sheep To Shawl

Sheep were sheared.

Yarn was dyed.

Pretty things were sold.

SweetP was sweet.

And a good time was had by all.



FO Friday – Toasty Toddler

At 15 months Wiggles is well and truly a toddler.  He walks nearly all the time now (although only where he wants to go still) and can say five words (assuming we’re counting animal noises as words).  He’s so much more than just a wiggly little baby lump that I think it’s time he graduated to a new blog name – SweetP.  He’s also graduated to a new sweater.  I want to make it a tradition that SweetP gets a new hand knit sweater every year.  There should be some perks to being the child of a knitter, right?  Last year I made him a Baby Sophisticate, which I inexplicably have no pictures of him wearing.  Maybe CodeMonkey has some – I’ll bug him and update later.  This year I went for a whole ensemble to keep SweetP warm while he’s playing outside.

Hat

Pattern: Why yes, it is another Aviatrix

Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca in 6243 Navy

Size: Worsted weight version in the 18 month size

Notes: I accidentally knit one extra wedge section and decided to leave it instead of ripping it out.  It worked out ok.  It makes the hat a little more prone to slipping down over SweetP’s eyes, but mostly it keeps his forehead and the back of his neck warmer.

Mittens

Pattern: Dulaan Easy-On Mittens

Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca in 6207 Salt and Pepper

Notes: So far SweetP doesn’t use the thumbs much, but they should fit him for a while so I imagine they’ll come in handy later.  Thanks to the I-cord we haven’t lost a mitten yet.

Sweater

Pattern: Gramps

Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca in 6243 Navy and 6207 Salt and Pepper

Size: 12-24 months

Notes: I left off the pockets and elbow patches in the interest of getting it finished and worn.

In a rather unusual display of seasonally appropriate weather, we got a lovely dusting of sparkly snow last night.  After opening stockings this morning, we went out and played in it.
