When Carrie was here I took her to my favorite store on the island of Manhattan: Purlsoho. It’s like heaven. Truly. She saw this little baby sweater on the shelf and challenged me to do it. She picked out these colors for a project for her son and nudged me to pick them up as well. I listened.
Can you believe that Pewter yarn is the exact same color as Pickle’s eyes?
When I went to pick out the buttons for the sweater, I was drawn to these neon yellow sew-on jewels and a headband idea was born. The headband is a tad small and the sweater a tad big, but I could NOT possibly WAIT to shoot her in it.
After looking over the 100 or so other people who knit this on ravelry, I realized that I made a mistake…knitting the button band upside down. I seriously thought I did a stellar job following this pattern this time, only to realize I messed up! Oh well…you probably didn’t notice until I pointed it out huh?
This is my second attempt at a knitted garment, and I feel really proud of it! Yippee!
