DAWN SWEATER


It looks a pretty grey dawn in my grey on grey photos today, but do you know what? I like it! This little beauty took me a little longer the expected, due to school getting in the way, but it is now done and ready to send to London for little Eliot, who arrived a few days ago.


I just love this pattern and have used it many times. It's Erika Knight's 'sweater' from her 'Nursery Knits' book.  It's a quick simple knit, but also modern and stylish. I have to say I also love the gorgeous merino and silk Rowan yarn, which is perfect for special baby garments and washes beautifully. 


The cute buttons work perfectly. After much fruitless searching for something just right in our city shops, I found these little beauties at the Wonderwool show a couple of weekends ago. I bought four, so can now repeat the knit for my elder daughter who is expecting a little brother or sister for darling Evie next May! Exciting!
