Let's talk a bit more about gnome knitting . . . I signed up for…
How is it that I can knit 4 pairs of socks since the start of the new year but it takes me 4 months to knit a simple cabled sweater? I don’t know either.
Whatever the reason, I finally finished the Child’s Cable Sweater for my adorable (step)grandson, Patrick.
He chose the color green and I chose the Peace Fleece. I love working with Peace Fleece. The colors are terrific, it’s warm and it wears like iron.
Patrick wanted cables so this pattern, the Child’s Cable Sweater by Yankee Knitter Designs, was perfect. I knit the largest size and added about 10 stitches for an extra bit of width. It’s a bit roomy through the neck and shoulders but we wanted him to have some growing room.
It’s a very simple sweater and an excellent pattern. Really, I have no excuse for taking so long to finish it.
Patrick is quite pleased with the sweater and he was perfectly thrilled to model it for the blog on Saturday morning.
He was even more thrilled when he took 2nd place at the Pine Wood Derby later that afternoon. I think he had a pretty great weekend.
