Cake au citron
My kitchen smells lemon-y sweet and so will yours! Enjoy!
Pattern: Dumpling from Rowan Babies.
Yarn: Rowan Ribbon Twist in shade 113.
Needles: Clover 10mm (adjusted from 12mm to get gauge)
Time: One week
Recipient: Our baby! :)
This sweater was a real joy to knit and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I'm hoping that our baby will be able to wear it next winter as he/she will be 6 months old. The buttons were a suggestion by the lady who works the Rowan counter at Le BM. The toggles work well with the chunky yarn as the pattern doesn't call for button holes. I got to hang out with Felix and his mamma yesterday and he happily tried on Dumpling for me. The sweater was a wee bit short on him as Felix is 10 months old now and as tall as a one year old! Doesn't he did look dashing?
Currently on the needles, Trellis from Knitty and Une Brassiere pour Bébé (sweater on the book cover) from Phildar Tricotez Cålin. I am going to get over my fear of French patterns by conquering a baby sweater! I think I finally understand all the 1 x 3, 2 x 5 business! :)
**edit** I've put up a rough conversion of the grams to cups for the Lemon cake as requested. Check the comments below... :)
