Early Arrival

I´ve found the missing photo of the sleeve for the Dragon sweater, from when it was half way done.

The yarn is from Östergötlands ullspinneri and dyed especially for the Dragon sweater by Ann at Anntorps Väv.

But this knitting was interrupted quite suddenly by a small surprise – only 50 centimeters and 3,3 kilos.

The small surprise – now named Siri – is the daughter of my friend Erika.
She arrived three weeks early so of course I was under the delusion that I had plenty of time to knit a little something.

When I got the news that it was a girl I hotfooted it over to my yarn stash and dug out some lovely apricot coloured wool and started knitting a little cardigan. I used an old pattern from the 1950´s – simple but pretty stylish. And a very quick knit – it took me under a week to finish.

You knit back and forth in garter stitch and when it´s done there is only one small hole under each sleeve that needs sewing together.

Brilliant – in my humble opinion.

I hope baby Siri will be happy with the cardigan.

  1. Supergullig kofta, den blir fin på lilla Siri!

  2. Hade samma problem, stickade på en kofta och boom! så var lilla bäbisen där två veckor tidig. Men hon är så pytte att koftan inte kommer passa förrän tidigast i höst. Har börjat på en ny nu, fast istället för grön och brun blir den lila och blå :) Mysigt att sticka till de små!
    Och vad snygg Solveigmössan är!
