Two more knits are off the needles and I am in love with them both.
The first is a darling cardigan for my nephew Rowan. It has many sweet details that make it such a satisfying knit. For some reason I did not get the sleeves in but there is a picot hem there as well. I knit it out of cascade 22o and it delivered as expected. My only disappointment is the sizing used in the pattern. It lists this size as 18months and it fits my 3 year old. And my gauge and measurements are correct. Heavy sigh. I am still very happy with it though.
Second is a hat knit for the Yarn Branch as a store sample as well as a class I will be teaching. It is the Capucine hat. It is so comfy and really don't want to bring it back to the shop ;P. It is knit out of one skein of Noro Nadeshiko. It has wool, angora, and silk. So soft and yummy with great colors!
My oldest will be going with my mother to see the Nutcracker this year. My mom first took us girls when we were five and I am so excited that my son will get to join in on this tradition! We have been reading The Nutcracker everyday and both the boys are loving the story. We have watched a couple of online videos as well. I want to make sure he is prepared and knows what to expect :) He is VERY excited and loves searching out any nutcracker decorations in the stores.
Noah fell asleep in the evening service at our church yesterday. My mom was delighted to have his warmth on her lap. There is just something perfect and sweet about a sleeping child. :)
