We interrupt this series of knits…

For a little bit of knitting! A finished sweater for Clementine, who was not interested in cooperating for this photo shoot:

But you just go with it, am I right?

Actually, I really love pictures of Clementine when she is being a stinker *wracking brain for example of time when she hasn’t been a stinker…totally stumped*

I started this sweater in November for Clementine and finally blocked it and sewed the buttons on it this week. I know it’s a bit odd to post about knitting in a month of knit sewing posts, but if you want to be really technical, a sweater IS technically made of knit fabric. Sneaky!

The pattern is the Yoked Cardigan from Knitbot and after showing its humble beginnings in this post (also above), Laura sent me a link to this adorable version:


So now I am totally in awe. Not only do I need to figure out how to be a better knitter so I can make a version THIS CUTE, I’m also going to need to dye Clementine’s hair red.

KIDDING.

If you haven’t seen yesterday’s KNITerview with Sophie yet, make sure you check it out. And, more knit posts to come!

  1. I love the sweater and the color of buttons you chose. As a natural strawberry blond myself I support the dying of her hair, you could add just a little red LOL.

  2. awww, she looks so pretty. she has the sweetest little mouth and chin!!! and i love that headband! i want one!!!

  3. Rae – the last sentence made me snort. Rock on with that knitting, you’re doing great! The photos are perfect, looks like Clementine has daisy eyes (or horns).

  4. Love the contrast between the cheery daisies and the pout, especially in the first pic! Too cute – and so is the sweater, great job!!

  5. I mean, you made the poor girl pose in the BATHROOM, maybe that was your first problem. πŸ˜‰ The sweater is SO cute, and so is little C!

    • HEEE. OK, in my defense, the bathroom was where she cowered off to when I pulled out my camera. I HAD NO CHOICE!!! πŸ˜›

  6. LOVE the pictures of C. I think the sweater looks amazing! I’ve only done hats and a couple of smaller toys… how hard was the sweater? Have you done clothes before? I’m so tempted to try it, but afraid that it might be over my skill level. Any thoughts?

  7. I love this! I also love that your daughter’s name is Clementine! I’m due, any day now, with my first child, a little girl. We’ve named her Veda Clementine πŸ™‚

  8. Your sweater looks great! The biggest difference between yours and the orange one is probably the yarn, not the skills. Malabrigo is a single ply merino, very drapey. The Plymouth tweed just has a different look.

  9. *sigh* i wish i knew how to knit. when i was young, a couple people tried to show me how, but it just seemed so complicated to me. when i find time, i will try again! i love, love your version of the sweater! the color, the texture, the buttons…the model… everything! πŸ™‚
