I am working on the Flax sweater for an infant for a friend (size 6 months to 1 year.) The Flax pullover sweater is a free pattern by Tin Can Knits and it’s a really easy sweater to knit and goes from sizes newborn to 4XL. I am at the bottom ribbing on the body, I will be starting the sleeves tomorrow :). It’s done from the top down so there won’t be any sewing things together. 🙂 I am using I Love This Yarn by Hobby Lobby and size 5 (for the neck ribbing) 16″ circular Knitter’s Pride Karbonz needles (I am loving the Karbonz they are mostly carbon fiber with brass tips so they are not super slippery like metal needles, I am not a fan of reg metal needles tho sometimes that is what I have) and size 7 16″ Knit Picks Radiant Wooden circular needles for the body (wood needles are always my first choice), and a size 7 9″ Circular Chiagoo bamboo circular needles for the sleeves and size 5 9″metal Chiagoo circular needles for the sleeve ribbing.. All are fixed needles and not interchangeable, the interchangeables of the needles I like are pretty expensive :P.
You can also see from the pictures that we have had our first and 2nd snow for this winter, sigh. The first snow was 3 inches on Monday night and the 2nd one was 2 more inches last night. Monday nights snow mostly melted on Tuesday because it got up to 40F. Last nights snow is still on the ground because it only got up to 34F. Poor trick or treaters, it’s in the upper 20’s right now and is suppose to be 20 over night :(. I am not ready for winter, fall isn’t even over yet!!!
If you live somewhere where it’s already getting cold, stay warm!
