Meet Oliver

I have  a new pattern out in the winter issue of Petite Purls!


I have this goal to knit a new sweater every fall/winter for H (and his brother next year).  The first one was the Child’s Placket-Neck Pullover, the second was Henry’s Sweater, and Oliver is this year’s ‘winner’.

My pregnant brain had a really hard time focusing on anything for awhile, so the top down construction was really handy for saving my sanity.  It’s sized from 6m-16, so if I ever want to take a designing out, then I have a backup for awhile.  Plus, I think it would look awesome all in one color, with just a center stripe, or with contrasting collar/cuffs/zipper band.

I’m also insanely happy with the pictures my friend Katie took.  It was over 80 the day we did the photoshoot, so it was really a challenge to get the photos to look like winter.  Another stumbling block was Henry’s case of the sniffles.  But, none of that comes out in the photos.

Ravel it!

    I do fall sweaters too! Best tradition ever.

      It really is. I like to pretend that they’ll be able to look back on them and see how much love went into each stitch, or use them for their babies.
