I am totally in love with this pattern, ‘Welcome to the Flock’ by Julia Farwell-Clay. There is also a matching wee cardigan, with a flock of sheep around the yoke.
The colorwork is so easy, it would be great for beginners!
It is too much. Too much fun, too cute, too fast to work up. I can see knitting many more for babes being born.
The yarn is stash from long ago, so bonus points there. Rowan Cashsoft DK for the mc in both, and Valley Yarns DK for the sheep. I did add an extra row to the sheep’s head, 3 stitches in brown in the center. US5 needles for the body, and US3 for the ribbing. The green hat is the largest size, the pink, the smallest.
This pretty much sums up today. Zzzzzzz.
Gone in the blink of an eye. She is beyond amazing, and very ready to be on the move. I’m so very lucky to have my two amazing wees.
In this house, Christmas celebrating does begin until the Friday after Thanksgiving, at the earliest. Except when it comes to holiday crafting- that business needs to start asap. In the spirit of holiday crafting, I made up a new Chevron Love Mitten Kit, inspired by one of my favorite holiday things, Twinkle Lights. It will be available in my shop beginning tomorrow! (and Psst, there may or may not be a 6 stripe Vesper Sock Yarn colorway on the way to match!)
I love the fall. I like deep fall, but really, i’d like to live somewhere that has pretty much mild summer weather all year round. At least I can break out the sweaters now!!
