Last chance to enter the fiber sampler giveaway. Winner will be announced on the blog on Wednesday.
I recently visited family in Oklahoma and Arkansas. I knew that we'd be spending time with my niece, so I wanted to bring her a gift. Wee Liesl is such an adorable pattern that works up quickly. I made one already for my new niece and the second one is just as cute as the first.
For this version I used one skein of Wollmeise Twin again and made the 3-4 year size. The color Babe is nice and bright. Nicole's first reaction when she saw it was, "it's missing buttons!" so clearly I can't put anything past her. i'll just have to suck it up for the next cardigan and stop being so lazy with the buttons.
I was a little nervous b/c i know that a sweater is not the most exciting present to a toddler, however her parents had previously warned me that she has too many toys so that was out. fortunately, she got a great deal of fun out of the brown paper gift bag I brought the cardigan in so it wasn't a total loss.
I just updated the yarn shop with a bunch of new colors and more will be added soon.
