After the success of my last baby jumper (little matelot sweater), I decided to continue my journey of knitting with another baby jumper. This time, I went for Touch Yarns, a 100% Merino New-Zeeland wool. I chose one of their patterns, a little sailor jumper.
The first difference from last time was to start with a ribbing (purl, knit, purl, knit, purl, etc..). I was slightly concerned to change thread back and worth for every single stitch, but it wasn’t that hard. I got the hang of it just by watching one or two video on YouTube. You can “admire” my first ribbing:
I started with the back, which was very similar to the other jumper, so I didn’t need help and did it quite quickly.
I now have the sleeves to do, the collar with some buttonholes (this would be challenging) and joining up all the pieces together.
I must admit that I really enjoy knitting and I already dream of all the projects to come.
Does anyone know about good link up parties for knitting? I love sharing my work and seeing what everyone else is working on for quilts, would love to do the same regarding knitting.
