Baby sweater

By spotogspindel | April 17, 2014

Tomorrow we are visiting our little baby bay grand-child, and I wanted to bring him a little something I made.


This sweater is knitted in the softest alpaca-yarn on thick needles. I swear it only took about 4 hours to knit! Then another hour putting it together, making the the stamp and printing on it.


Hopefully the parents will like it too. Lavender is his mother´s favorite color, and his father loves stags (he´s into hunting)


I find that not a lot of people do this combination, stamping a pattern onto what they´ve knitted. If there is a pattern, it´s knitted into the the knit itself. But printing onto a knit gives quite a different effect. And maybe, since you hardly see it on homemade stuff anyway, that´s why I like it!
