My gender neutral Little Lamby set. I can't tell you how excited I am about the way this has turned out. This is the third time I have actually made this sweater, it is a wonderful (not to mention free!) pattern by Jennifer Little.
The hat and mittens were totally made up as I went. Since I was having tension issues with this slippery yarn on the sweater, I decided to just put the little lambs on the mitts and hat with duplicate stitch. I'm not gonna lie- it totally gave me a hankerin' to find a great cross stitch or embroidery pattern to try out- any suggestions?
I added little buttons to the end of the sleeves, along with button holes to the ribbed portion of the mitts.
Hopefully this will keep mitts in place!
You may have noticed that the front buttons of the sweater are still missing, that is on purpose. I have pink and blue buttons that will both be making the trek to the hospital with me.
I also found the perfect shade of pinkish/peach silk bamboo yarn in my stash that will be added as flowers to the taller blades of grass in the occasion that baby FPK turns out to be of the girl variety.
So let the dishes pile up, the work load increase- in my opinion, we now have all we need :)
