I've done some knitting.
That's no surprise.
Knitting that took place somewhere in June. It resulted in a cardigan for my oldest daughter. Somehow I never got round to taking pictures of it... let alone posting and blogging about it.
But now, I've done some more knitting.
The same cardigan, a tad smaller for the daughter who's also a tad smaller. And this one actually likes modeling... so I did take pictures and here's to blogging about it:
And for the details. It's a model by Citronille. And Citronille is rather large and wide... mostly wide. So for the 4 year old daughter I knitted the size 2 years... and in fact I also knitted the size 2 years for my 6 year old kiddo.
Huh? Well, I used Ultra Pima Cotton by Cascade Yarns in a mint green color. For the smaller of the cardigans I used 3.5 mm needles. For the larger version I went for 4.5 mm needles. And of course, for both cardigans I adjusted the length to suit my particular offspring. Two skeins made these two cardigans.
The cardigan knits top down in a single motion. No ends to weave in apart from the start and finish, and a mere 2 buttons to sew on. A joy to knit. Not in the least because this cotton is so fluid to knit with. It just glides over your needles. It's light, really light, and has a subtle shine which brings out the soft green nicely.
My model has been promoting her new cardigan to everyone in a 10 feet radius by asking aloud "isn't this a most beautiful cardigan? And oh oh, it's so soft."
Yes, a model like her is a treasure to hold on to. Just like she's holding on to this green pastures cardigan...
