I finished knitting a size 2 sweater for my sister's older girl recently.
The pattern is called "Langston" by Teresa Cole. I found the pattern pretty easy and it did not consume a lot of yarn so it was a good use for a relatively small amount of handspun.
More info on it with more photos on my ravelry page. I am tempted to knit another one of these it was so fun.
The yarn itself came from naturally dyed 50% silk 50% merino by A Verb for Keeping Warm in this super yummy pink colorway. I forget exactly what the colorway is called, I'll find the tag it came with eventually - hopefully!
Having some silk mixed in with the fiber content really takes the 'itchy' element out of the mix for little ones. I am sure that my niece will love it, and if she doesn't maybe my sister will make her wear it anyhow.
In other news, my son (with a little help from daddy) decided to ride his bike without the training wheels. I was such an awesome sight to behold. I was so proud of his new skill. I called all of my family to let them know of the big event.
I was reading Ann's blog - Notes from the Quilt Lab - and she did a post on an antique hot pad from around the 1850's. I am so amazed that something like this could survive that long and loved seeing it. Check out her post here.
