Fun with mini sweaters
The urge to finish knitting projects is upon me--instead of starting more and more and MORE new things, this seems like a good time to knock off the final stages of some of the in-progress sweaters that have been piling up in my big basket.

This one, "Flutters," already has a home. The yarn is recycled and re-plied cashmere, and the other charmpoint is the itty-bitty flock of butterflies that are pretending to be buttons. Three cheers for the Etsy sellers who find amazing materials for me to play with!

This is "Sugarplum," knitted from a stunning handspun yarn (silk and Bluefaced Leicester wool) and again sporting vintage Czech-glass buttons, all sourced from more Etsy shops.

Too much fun, I have. And because aoi_no_neko reminded me, here's the link: http://www.squirrelmoonknits.etsy.com

Yup, I've had Meru there since last spring--she is just adorable. I've always loved Xiao, ever since Sher first got Jeremiah Blue and I started looking at the BF site.

That ruffly stitch pattern is incredibly easy except for the row that creates the ruffle (knit 4 together through the back loop, then knit 4 together the normal way). In a looser gauge, it wouldn't be fiddly, but I was knitting this sweater so tight that I had to use a crochet hook to muscle the working yarn through all those loops. Still, the effect was worth a little cursing and spitting in the end.
