Love it! It’s the cutest!!! And the hat just makes it even more special!
I give you Gramps!
This is gramps from Tin Can Knits. They offered a free pattern at the end of the year and I have always admired this one. With two great-nephews to knit for, I am now on the look out for boy things. This one will get repeated for GN #2. He has the same hat, so I just might get more Vintage to make another. But I will make mods, no provisional cast on at the neck. I just prefer my necks to have stability. Live sts do not provide that. So, just cast on and knit. And then pick up sts for the collar. And, pick up more sts along the V-neck. I think I should have done 5 for 6 in stead of 4 for 5.
To make it even more gramps like, I had to get the faux leather buttons. Too cute! The little one will be coming to visit in less than a week, so I am hoping to get photos of him wearing it. Too bad I can’t get the yarn and make the 2nd one in time for them both to model together. For sure they will be modeling the hats I made them.
Next on the needles is Milkweed Capelet and Drops 0-684. Milkweed for me, glad I just got the errata notice on it, and the baby sweater for an online friend’s babe. Milkweed is being made with my luscious Lana D’Oro in a deep purple. The sweet sweater is being made with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in a deep purple. Who knew I liked purple?
I am hoping this year I can keep the mojo going and not bottom out from April to July! If I can choose good patterns that don’t end up frustrating me, I should be good. That means staying away from pseudo designers. If they don’t have a proven record, with good techniques, keep away from them.
