WIP Wednesday: Gems Baby Sweater

posted in: baby | 2

I’ve really struggled to find a good gender neutral baby sweater pattern that I like in a lighter weight yarn. It seems most people like to knit their baby sweaters out of heavier yarns and/or they are very gender specific. I’ve had these random skeins of Louet Gems Fingering in my stash forever, and I thought that the Sea Foam Green was the perfect gender neutral color. I’m combining it with some stripes at the top in white, and I … Read More

Last week I impulsively wound a skein of Louet Euroflax Sport that I found hiding out in my stash.

As knitters I’m sure you’ve known, and rolled your eyes at, a few people who say this just as I have. Now there IS itchy … Read More

I also get to go to the photo shoots, hire models, and style the garments and work with the talented and lovely Caro Sheridan. If you’d told me six years ago when I was graduating from college and going into the Peace Corps I was going to have a career in the knitting … Read More

It seems like a really long time ago when I knit these, and you may have ¬†already seen these, but with Fall knitting upon us and the Louet Blog Tour it’s about time I write about my two patterns in the Louet Fall 2014 Collection! Coleen is a lovely jacket knit in Gems Worsted. It’s shown here with 3/4 length sleeves, but you could easily lengthen the sleeves and it’d make a great jacket that you could wear throughout the … Read More
