Lupine’s Birthday Sweater.





I saw Lupine coming through the living room with tea cups for a celebration she was organizing in the other room. She was wearing a party dress and the sweater I made her this fall. The sweater!

And I realized that I haven't shared any recent knitting projects with you for ages. There has been a lot of casting off happening around here, including Lupine's birthday sweater. (Yes, from November.) I cast it off the evening before her birthday but never photographed it. Something about that hotel lighting… 

And as with all the other finished-but-not-yet-shared projects, finding time to photograph them when both the clothing and the wearer are clean has been, um, challenging. Ahem.

The sweater pattern is Kina, and my project details are here. I knit the size 6-7 (she's a solid 5) because I couldn't make myself knit a size 4-5 (fear of smallness) so it's a bit big still, but I think she'll get at least a year or two out of it. The yarn was silky cotton, something I never knit with. So dreamy. (I normally knit with wool.)

I plan to share more of the completed projects in the coming weeks. There are many. (Oh, and if someone would call Pete and ask him to photograph my hat, cowl, and sweater that would be awesome. This bathroom mirror camera trick just ain't cutting it.)

And thank you to my mom who is responsible for Lupine's unusually clean hair. Hooray for Nanny. She insists of baths and improves my photographs.

    That sweater is so lovely. The color just makes me drool! And of course the model is adorable! We’ve just started down the road to tea parties as well. I love it!

    Love the sweater! and i usually go big too…i can’t stand the thought of spending so much time on a project and then having my little one grow out of it in one season.

    Oh my goodness, I am in love with this sweater, and I love that you posted this a few months late because Aiya’s birthday is next week I’ve been unable to settle on anything and this is PERFECT!!! Now, let’s see, if we get to the yarn store this afternoon and cast on tonight…..
