Tiny Tea Leaves


I mentioned on Wednesday that I finished my (well, Buttercup's really) tiny tea leaves sweater!

I am so happy with it.  It came out so adorable and best of all...

Done with having her photo taken and more interested in catching big brother!

She LOVES it!

I really am so happy with it and will totally make another one!  It really wasn't so bad, as this is a big project for me. It is a tad too big, which I think is perrfect.  She can wear it for a long time!  It went really fast, other than that bit about running out of yarn.  Speaking of which, I made it out of Malabrigio 99 Stone Blue.  Buttercup kept mentioning how soft it is.  So it was such a pleasure to knit with.  

Anyway, I am not sure if I will ever get it off her.  Which is good!  Right?

  1. LOVE! The pattern, yarn, and of course the model. :)

    I'm definitely going to make one of these. Soon. Hopefully.
    My problem is I have so many projects on my list. *sigh* This knitting thing is turning out to be a lot like my reading thing. Never enough time for all I have stacked up and waiting for me! Can I just go on a sabbatical somewhere with just my books and yarn? ;) I was just turning over in my head what my next project would be (I'm finishing Dancer's legwarmers now). Owl hat or Princess Kate shawl? I have everything I need for both. But that little cardi keeps popping up around the web and yours turned out so cute. I'm sorely tempted.

  2. I love it too! Gosh, you are so talented. I HAVE to take a class somewhere to learn how to knit.
    Love the blue, love the model. Really, she should be the picture on the pattern.

    **I think I'm following Kelly, this is the 2nd or 3rd place I've commented after her. haha!

  5. A little catch-up:

    Beautiful sweater!! I have that one in my queue, but I have to focus on knitting 8 (little/simple) Christmas presents first! LOL!!

    Oh, and from your Yarn Along: I want to read "I Capture the Castle," too!

    God bless, Amy!
