Cabin Fever Homecoming Layette
This is a new pattern from Cabin Fever 615 Homecoming Layette
Only took a few days to knit and I really enjoyed the knitting!
Yarn is Patons Astra in a pretty peach using size 5 needles, the construction is top-down- knitting the sleeves before you finish the patterned body section. Of course I had to do-it-my-way and use straight needles for the sleeves, no double pointed for me! The hat comes with the pattern but it's not very visable either on their website or on the actual pattern. I was surprised the lacey pattern wasn't used on the hat but the garter stitch rolled up brim compliments the sweater, don't cha think?
I have another sweater and hat almost done, this one is from Designs by Jeannine. I hope to post a pic tomorrow.
My finger is healing nicely and I'm staying away from sharp objects!
