I've finished the Milo for Baby R. This really is a contender for my favourite knitting pattern ever! It's on circular needles (which is my method of choice) easy enough for sleep-deprived knitting, but with just enough detail to keep my interest. I've made four so far, one in each size for my tiny man, each with a different yarn. You can see the others over on my Ravelry page
This latest one is the twelve month size, made using teal Baby Alpaca DK. It's a scrumptious yarn- incredibly soft, and a beautiful colour. I've made Milos with a few different cable designs, but the owl cable really is my favourite. It's so very sweet!
I would call this a tank top, although in your neck of the woods I think it's called a vest. Whatever you call it, it's a thoroughly useful extra layer for little ones.
I'm sure that this won't be my last Milo- the pattern goes up to six years, so there's scope for many more. In the meantime, however, I'm perusing patterns for the marvellous yarn that you included with my birthday goodies- thank you, sweetie! At the moment, I'm thinking of making a retro style tea cozy.
In the spirit -once again -of yarn along: my knitting and my reading (or rather my looking at pretty pictures!) The book is the surprisingly inspirational In Print by Cath Kidston, which is giving me ideas for using up my vintage fabric stash.
