Let's Get This Party Started!

So I think I will kick this blog off with a KNITTING post featuring vintage pictures of Cora. How could I resist?  I actually made this sweater back in 2007...long before Cora was even thought about. I originally made it for my niece, Mya. I knitted it during my field season in Antarctica to pass the time. Knitting is a GREAT field hobby! Especially since the sun never went down allowing me to work late into the night with no headlamp. The sweater has since been passed down to my daughter, Cora, who was able to wear it for quite some time. Since it is now too small for her, I am anxiously waiting for another baby to wear it. I am very impressed the thing hasn't unraveled yet.

This sweater is called Baby's Top with Moss Seed Trim by Debbie Bliss. It is size 3-6 months. I used US 2 and US 3 sized needles. I honestly can't remember the type of yarn I used. It is very soft yarn and perfect for babies. I did buy it at Knit and Purl in Edmonton, AB. The buttons are hand crafted from a native New Zealand tree. I bought them in Christchurch, NZ before I headed to McMurdo, Antarctica.

  1. Oh my god, you have a SWEATER under your knitting belt?!? With supremely CUTE buttons? You are amazing!

    I dibs the sweater for my future child.

    Sorry ladies, you were too slow on the uptake. The sweater is all mine.

  2. I love the buttons, too. :) :) :)

  3. We can be the sisterhood of the traveling sweater! This just means you need to have a kid next, Kim. ;-) haha!
