EZ #6

A friend of mine told me she was pregnant a couple of weeks ago, so it only made sense that my next EZ knit be a February Baby Sweater.   I love this pattern to infinity and beyond.   I could knit 100 of these and never tire of it.  Seriously.  Black *.  I'm thinking it will fit a newborn perfectly.

I used about two-thirds of a hank of Misti Alpaca Pima Cotton Silk DK in a straw colour.  I picked this up at Shall We Knit in February, and it was sitting in the stash ready to be a February Baby Sweater since.  It feels so warm and buttery and soft all at the same time.  Like petting the belly of a well-brushed kitten.  Yes.  That's what it feels like.

So that brings me up to six out of twelve Elizabeth Zimmermann patterns so far.  I think I'm pacing myself quite nicely.  I still have to steek something as it's on my list of to-do's, but I'm confident that I can finish another six projects before year-end.  Absolutely


* When someone is caught saying 'seriously' in my immediate family, it is ALWAYS followed by another person saying 'black'.   It was funny once, and oddly enough, still sends us into uncontrollable fits of giggles.  I think it's a Harry Potter thing.

I have officially failed miserably at the EZ throw down. *sigh*

It's not like I didn't know you'd kick my butt at it, but at least I was ahead at one point. Briefly!

This is beautiful! I'm knitting a baby sweater right now and wish I'd chosen this pattern instead of the one I'm using -- oh well -- knit and learn ;-)

It's a very sweet little sweater. It's a nice color too. Lucky little one to fall be able to wear the softness of a kitten.

I like the color of the yarn you used it came out great it seems everyone is having babies lately. So far I haven't made anything from EZ yet but I do love the Feb Baby Sweater.
