Miss Dashwood is complete!

Another week another finished gift for Maggie's little bun in the oven. Everyone is really excited that we have a baby girl to buy for, andI am over the moon that I get to knit for a girl. I love her son, Charlie, but I never got into knitting for him. It will be different for Finn. She will be showered with knitwear, from day 1. :)
The Ugg booties are for her, and this week I finished Miss Dashwood, from

Here is Charlie modeling it for us. Thanks, boy.

Next on the needles is the Pinwheel baby sweater from This site is great! Tons of free paterns!

Here are the colors pallets I have chosen to knit.

Each sweater has 7 different colors, with color #4 as the arms. The greatest thing about this sweater is that it is basically a big circle with sleeves thrown in. The sweater can be worn with the sleeves toward the bottom when the baby is 6-9 months old. Roll the excess sleeve length up and it has a little hood as well. Once baby gets older, you flip it over and the "hood" becomes the bottom back of the sweater. The pattern says it can be worn up to 4 years old! Seems like a winner to me. I ordered the yarn last night, so I can start when the big package arrives this week! So excited!

My students will be turning in their baby sweaters this week, so come back next week for pics of their finished work! I can't wiat to see them!

Hello Ms. N,
The circular knitting has really got you, huh? This little sweater is amazing. I'm inspired and looking forward to seeing how it comes out.
Now I must go browse Elann . . .
