This sweater wall is a happy accident. I started displaying baby sweaters in my sewing room so I could admire them while they were awaiting their new home. Seeing them just makes me happy and I'll miss them when they go! Most are 12 months or 18 months size which I think is a perfect size to knit and to give. Baby will be wearing it in no time and will hopefully be able to wear it for close to a year. The newest addition to the sweater wall is Penny Straker's original Owl Baby Cardigan in pink. The yarn is skinny, the needles are tiny, (sizes 1 and 2) and is my favorite knit ever as they always come out completely adorable. Long time blog readers will know I've knit a dozen or more from Penny's decades old pattern. The yarn is Dale Garn Baby Ull, a super-soft, well-priced, well-behaved, machine-washable wool that doesn't get the attention it deserves, so I'm here to tell you I love it! Links are at the end of the post.
