Bought some silky fingerling merino from Sundara in the Poppy colorway:
Still waiting on glove number two, and I think I even have enough yarn for it!
Elizabeth Zimmerman was a knitting guru and responsible for this adorable pattern from her book The Knitter's Almanac.
I first came across it on Brooklyn Tweed a really wonderful blog by a knitter/photographer in Brooklyn who knitted this:
Beautiful right? And this is how I came to know Sundara yarn.
I knit this in the round instead of on two needles, and I picked up the stitches under the arms so that it was entirely seamless.
A very fun knit. It was also the first time that I've tried to knit lace. It was moderately successful. There were definitely rows where I fell out of sync and may have shifted the pattern over a stitch or two, but I forgave myself and moved on.
See-- if you look across the body right where the arms met you can see I messed with the lace a bit, but I bet when it's on an actual baby no one will notice :)
