My Free Patterns

Oh yes, I'm in love........

I am a very happy girl this week. I kicked it into high gear and got the sleeves done on my top. And I love it, blemishes and all. And no, I'm not going to point out all the mistakes. I can live with them, and no one else needs to look that hard!



I am now fairly certain the girls take better pictures than I do.

Pattern: Baby Cables and Big Ones too
Yarn: Stylecraft Life DK

I hit the stall button once I got to the sleeves. Then I put my big-girl pants on, bought some longer DPN's, and they flew off the needles. Turns out I love the sleeves most of all. I'm pretty sure that Suvi Simola is a genius. Even my  husband said it was my best project ever. Uhm, yeah, because the pattern kicked butt

Also awesome, I have enough yarn left over to knit a wee cardigan I have my eye on (at least, I think there is enough left over).

Take care, happy crafting!!

  2. It's beautiful. Love the random cables, almost remind me of the medical symbol, but I am sure you weren't going for that look.
