A sweater for Kaia :)

Kaia SweaterMy bigger version (no pattern used) of the Tulip Baby Sweater.. as was recently seen on Yarn Harlot’s blog 🙂

It’s knit from KnitPicks Bare Superwash Worsted that I dyed.. and I really like this yarn. The website says it’s merino, though the label makes no mention of it, but it’s really quite soft (very much like their Swish Superwash yarn), and totally washable – always a plus!

A first for me was the applied i-cord edging… which was not nearly as tedious as I had feared it would be, and it gives a nice stretchy finished edge.



Rarrrr!
