Elsie

July 21, 2016













Tiny baby-knits are so quick and rewarding to make.  I love my newest, very soft and feminine finished knit:  here's Elsie from Little Rowan Cherish by Linda Whaley, knit in Rowan Pure Wool DK.  Lace and baby girls are perfect for each other!  I loved knitting it and cannot wait to gift it to a grade school, middle, and high school chum of my son who has recently moved back to the area with his wife and new baby.  This was a very fun little bit of lace to knit and while I didn't make any real modifications, I did choose not to make the lace pattern on the back and knit plain stockinette instead. 
 

Cherish, this book is darling!
Rowan Pure Wool DK, wah, it's discontinued,
and replaced by Pure Wool Superwash DK

    1. Thank you Leslie. That is so kind of you to say! When I have a finished baby sweater I always hang it in my sewing room so I can enjoy at it. Little Elsie sailed off last night to it's new owner--guess I'll have to make another little decoration for my sewing room!
