So, as you may remember I said that I wanted to knit my own Christmas stockings this year. Well I have made progress and to my amazement figured out how to do it! Thanks to all of the help over the phone from Amber and from you-tube tutorials I have some finished stockings! They are really big, and super bright and happy. I have two more to go, but got distracted by other fun projects so they are on the back burner for now.
You can see the scale here. Chloe could almost fit in one of these they are so awesomely big!
free pattern here! I made this for my adorable pregnant friend Amy and her soon to be born baby girl. I made the arms extra long so she could fold them up now, and fold them down later for a much longer sweater lifespan. I absolutely love the bright colors in this noro yarn. I actually loved this sweater SO MUCH that I went out and bought even more of the same yarn and made a bigger sweater for Chloe. It looks super cute on and I will post some of those pictures later on!
preemie pattern online and decided to use that one, since I wanted to use a thicker yarn and was afraid if I made the regular baby size it would be way too big. I love how it turned out and can't wait to see it on our little baby girl once she arrives! I was right about the sizing too. It looks like about 3 month size (from what I remember of tiny baby sizes). I think I will try the long sleeve modification next time, since we do live in Alaska after all! I used noro yarn for this too and love how the colors turned out. The quality of this yarn is so far above the quality of stuff you can buy at Michaels or other craft stores. I will NEVER again buy nylon yarn. NEVER EVER!
