I don’t know about you, but the longer I have yarn languishing in my stash, the less likely I am to be excited to knit with it! I recently found a pattern for a little girl’s sweater on Ravelry which I thought would be the perfect layering piece for Kiki. The pattern I’m talking about is Cinnamon from the uber talented knitwear designer, Elena Nodel.
I loved the chic-ness of it and thought about how gorgeous it would look knit it in the same yarn used by the designer. Then I looked at my yarn bins in their over-stuffed state and decided that I would resist the Ooh Shiny temptation and knit this sweater with, drumroll please… stash yarn!
This yarn is a blend of organic cotton which makes it perfectly suitable for fall wearing and superwash wool which means it is pre-school friendly! Elena’s patterns are detailed and well written. You can tell that a lot of effort and thought has been put into this design. I can’t wait to get to the pockets 🙂
