Tag Archives: Kids Knits

Fun in the snow

Yay, it’s still here! Though I admit I was worried last night when Marcin told me it was raining.
We put on our favorite knits and warm jackets, grabbed kids’ sled and went to our favorite forest for some winter fun.

We are wearing:
Marcin – Skrappy Ski Hat & Rama Lama,
Wojtek – Skrappy Ski Hat & Heartwarmer,
Aga – I Heart Cables I made for Wojtek 2 years ago (don’t you just love Cascade for its endurance),
me – Seikkailu Hat, Rasta Velvet Cowl and The Big Cable.

Hope you are also having a great time this weekend!

P.S. Sorry for the poor quality of pics, I had only my mobile with me.

Peachick Eyes Cardigan

Did you know that I baby peacock is called a peachick? :-) Me neither. Until I started working on kiddy version of Peacock Eyes Cardigan.

I cast on at the beginning of summer as it was meant to be a summer cardigan – light, airy, perfect to go with a dress or pants. Even though I’d ripped the yoke three times before it was perfect, the knitting was pure pleasure. No wonder as it’s made in Malabrigo Sock.

But then I got stuck on sleeves. Two tiny sleeves! Can you believe that? It took me over a month to make them. All because I had to make them one after another as I was alternating skeins and I didn’t want to cut them to make 4 small balls of yarn.

Today we are finally having nice weather so I took my girl for a walk to take some pics showing this beautiful pink yarn. I think it’s one of the most fabulous shades of pink I’ve seen – perfect for little girls.

The walk was great, though I admit it was a real adventure for her doll. :-D

The pattern should be ready for testing in about two weeks and after the test is complete it will be available on Ravelry as a single download or part of “On a Peacock”s Tail” collection.

Have a great day everyone!
