Finally... Another baby knit wrapped and baby shower bound. And with that, I wave goodbye to the oodles and oodles of girly knitting patterns that as of late have overwhelmed my favourites on Ravelry until the next "It's a girl!" announcement from my circle of family and friends.
I chose the Child's Placket-Neck Sweater (a classic looking gender-neutral knit) and paired it with Estelle Arequipa (such a sweet and soft yarn... must be that touch of alpaca) in the most gorgeous of colourways. I intentionally wanted to knit this yarn into something not too feminine to avoid being too sweet for even the sweetest of sweet tooths.
Aside from running out of yarn and almost running out of time, it was a relatively quick knit. I was baffled by some of the instructions when first reading them, but as I worked through it, it all made complete sense. I love how it all turned out and see many more placket neck sweaters in my future.
But, back to the yarn - can I tell you how much I love this yarn? It is sweet and sugary and oh-so reminiscent of cotton candy. And I seriously wanted to eat it the entire way through this project. Thankfully, common sense prevailed and I saved myself some serious gastrointestinal woes by keeping it on the needles and out of my mouth.
