Today is the day- my favorite holiday of the entire year. Everything is red and pink, each bowl is filled with sugar and there is simply no excuse NOT to buy flowers. I just... love it. It's exactly what the world needs in the middle of an otherwise rather dreary month.
So to celebrate my favorite day, I thought that I would crank out (yet another) striped baby sweater.
Pink, red, stripes, and some little heart buttons.
Little heart buttons that found their way into my stocking this Christmas, courtesy of my sister Emma.
But do not let this sudden onslaught of baby knitting allow you to think that perhaps I might be pregnant.
Because... you would be sorely disappointed.
Much like "Auntie Emma" was yesterday when she discovered that my text to her which included a photo of this sweater using her buttons was NOT in fact a baby announcement.
So, sorry folks.
No babies baking over here.
But that doesn't mean I can't knit for babies- does it?
Lovey-Dovey Sweater Facts
Pattern- Striped Baby Cardigan by Debbie Bliss, from her book Baby Cashmerino 2
(this is the fourth time I have knit this, so I don't expect too much of an applause over it).
Yarn- Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, 2 balls each of shade 601 (baby pink) and shade 700 (ruby)
Size- 6-9 months
Needles- 2.75mm and 3.5mm (I always bump up my needles when I knit with this stuff)
Recipient- The invisible baby that lives at Mary's Yarns (meaning... it's a store sample)
That imaginary baby is going to be one festively dressed little creature today.
As for what I am wearing... that goes without saying.
Happy Valentines Day dear knitters.
May your day be nothing but 'sweet'.
