I’m almost done knitting my kage sweater! Well, I’m done knitting, but working on weaving in ends, seaming the pieces together and finishing edges. The linen is so soft and lovely, I can’t wait to wear this sweater once it’s complete. And you want to know what’s exciting about this knit piece? It can go in the washer and dryer … AND it comes out softer each time! Yay linen yarn! You may be unforgiving but you do have your huge merits.
And isn’t this the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? A box full of beautiful colors of yarn. Just wait and see what I’m going to do with it all.
Here’s a little hint – I may be opening up my shop again for a good cause. More to come on that later (and these photos make me giggle because I was so excited, I couldn’t wait to take off the whitening strip on my teeth)…
My friends are still having babies! And a good friend is having a little girl, so I crocheted up a familiar little hat and the sweetest dress.
It may be one of my favorite things I have crocheted. I took some queues from this granny square crochet/fabric dress pattern but sized it down, added a shell stitch edge and changed the straps.
Pretty excited to wrap this one up and see the mama-to-be open it up!
