Several months ago, my best friend, Taryn, moved over a 1,000 miles away and in spite of my most earnest pleadings, she refused to leave her baby girl here with me, can you believe it?? I don’t have any grandchildren yet so this sweet little child was filling in quite nicely and I really enjoyed kisses, hugs, and making a few knitted items for her before she was whisked off to California by her parents. After they left, I wanted to continue to knit for her, and after an initial attempt in which I realized that the sweater I was making for her would fit for all of a day and a half, I started over and this is the result:
The pattern is Corrie by Sarah Ronchetti. I love Sarah’s designs - her Basketweave Rib Socks are some of my favorites and I can’t wait to try her Scout Base Socks soon. I purchased the buttons on Etsy from Moon Garden Stitches - aren’t they adorable? Yarn used was Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK from my stash.
Anyway, Corrie came out really well and I’ll be shipping it off soon to my adopted granddaughter, whose name just happens to be Corinth (Corrie for short - how appropriate) and who just turned a year old a few days ago. I’ll have to rely on her mommy to give her several big hugs and smooches from me.
What’s on your needles right now?
