Is this picture creative or what!?
Hi, here is a sweet little sweater we wanted to share it with you but did not have a model to wear it so...
The book the pattern was in just happened to have a cute little girl on the cover - so I put it behind the sweater to make it look like she is wearing it. I think that was rather creative - if I say so myself!
The book is by Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino 3. You will find over 14 patterns for babies and toddlers from newborn to 2 years for both girls and boys. There is also a beautiful blanket and knitted toys. We also have Baby Cashmerino 1 and Baby Cashmerino 2 which are also filled with adorable projects.
This sweater only took 3 balls of Baby Cashmerino. It was wonderful to knit with. The yarn is a blend of merino wool, micro fibre and cashmere. We have 9 fashionable colours for you to pick form. I am sure that all babies would love to have a sweater made from this very soft and easy care yarn.
On a 4mm needle - Baby Cashmerino works up as a Double knitting weight yarn - so you could even make yourself something!
I love to knit & have my dream job - owning a yarn shop & being around wonderful fibers all day. I have owned the shop for over 19 years & been part of the business for 15 years before that. I love sharing my knitting knowledge with my super customers & also teaching new knitters all about this creative "addiction" called knitting.
