That sweater again


Yes, I made it again. In my defence I would offer that it is the first time I have made it this year! I realise that this knit frequently appears in the same colour too, well I'm sorry, I like this colour and it is always available in my local yarn shop. This colour goes with lots of the ribbons in my ribbon jar and I am pretty sure it will grace these pages again.


I did try to make it a little different this time by adding little bloomers in the softest needlecord. I realise this is not a colour match made in heaven but it was all that my fabric stash had to offer and given how very late this baby gift is I really could not afford any fabric shopping time or there really will be no chance of it fitting for even a day.


I made my own pattern for the bloomers, based on a Japanese one but there is a lovely pattern in the first edition of Sewhip and a pull-out pattern for the same bloomers in the current addition.


I used french seams throughout and then sewed them down, not sure if that makes sense but basically it means that these seams are not only rather beautiful but very strong, perfect, I hope, for a baby who will soon be on the move. French seams do drive me a little crazy whilst I am sewing them, I am an impatient sewer, but once you have used them a few times you really do want to use them on everything, they are just so very good.



In case you need reminding of the details... Sweater from Simple Knits For Cherished Babies ,made in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.

Hello, Neat post. There is a problem along with your website in
web explorer, may check this? IE nonetheless is the market
chief and a large component to other people will omit your great writing because of this problem.
