First up is the sweater I knit my brother. He was quite happy that he got a sweater for Christmas.
He's been wearing it pretty frequently since Christmas. This was the first clear non washed out photo I could take since he got it.
Pattern : Émilien by Ariane Caron-Lacoste
Yarn : Cascade 220 Superwash Worsted 4 balls of Navy & 4 balls of Silver Grey
This was a fairly easy knit. I wasn't fond of the cast on. At the time I wasn't sure if I wanted to do a hood but in the end decided against it. If you decide not to do a hood you can do any cast on you wanted. Knowing this now I'll do a long tail cast on for the next one. I found that the cast on the pattern calls for ends up being a little too loose so that row looks kinda messy in the end but my brother assured me that t wasn't that noticeable. Except to me.
Also, the body ended up being a little snug compared to how perfect the sleeves fit. So I would also add more stitches to the body for the cast on row for the next one I would make. Aside from that it turned out quite well.
I'm hoping to get some better pictures of the sweater I knit my sister. Then I can do a post on her Reverb :-)
I've been super excited the last month. There has been 2 babies born in my family :-) Both my cousins were expecting this year and I couldn't wait to start knitting for these 2 darling babies :-) so right now I've got a darling baby sweater on the needles.
Pattern : Sunnyside by Tanis Lavallee
Yarn : Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label in Garnet
I can't explain how much I love this yarn. It's so soft :-) I know that my cousin's little girl will love it!
Happy Knitting :-)
