When i saw the babysack Ingrid knit, i got inspired and decided to try something similar for my colleague daddy-to-be and try stranding (aka Fair Isle)… I used some mohair-like 70% acrylic 30% polyamid i got from my grandma’s stash with 3mm needles. This yarn is totally unfroggable! I didn’t have a baby to put in it, so i used whatever there was :rofling:. It’s made for 3-6 months sized baby.
Love it!! You did a super job. Wish I had a little one to make this for.
Nice job Nat.
That looks great! Wish mine were still little enough to use something like that - (for oh so many reasons!:teehee:)
That must’ve taken forever!! It’s lovely!
Phenomenal! I just love it!
oooohhhhhh la la! Pretty!
That is too cute!! Excellent job!
That’s so beautiful! I’m sure your collegue will love it.
I don’t know what that means (I’m sorry, i’m rather weak with Australian dialect :rofling:), but thank you!!!(I’m sorry, the little linguist in me is intrigued)…
Well, it took me about 2 months and i didn’t knit everyday and it was fast, because it’s mostly knit in the round so i don’t have to purl:cheering::cheering::cheering:
Purdy: slang form of Pretty
If you stretch pretty out with a southern drawl, (or massachusets accent) it can come out sounding more like purrrrr-ty or purrrrdy.
and it IS Purdy
What a treasure!
I hope his wife will love it:roflhard:. Otherwise, i’ll feel awkward. I hope she won’t ask him “Is there a receipt with that, can i exchange that?”:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:People here are not used to hand knitted stuff:shrug:.
Now i know something new :cheering::cheering::cheering: Thank you for the quick assistance, marykz!
Beautiful interpretation!! I love the ruffle–it adds a very nice touch!!:cheering::cheering:
That is so beautiful, Nat! And this is your 1st project using colorwork?? Wow!! Very nice!!
That’s beautiful! You did a great job.
