Waves for Warmer Weather

Here's the finished product that I initially posted about here. I've called this the Waves Cardigan & Skirt set and it is now available through Brown Sheep Yarn.

It's funny to me to be posting summer outfits in the middle of January and perhaps I should hold off and show these closer to Spring...but it's exciting when I can finally post about a finished design & I have a hard time waiting! This set was at the TNNA winter show this past weekend & the pattern leaflet should be available soon from Brown Sheep.

Here's my 2 year old modeling the size 2 that I knit.

And here's my 4 year old modeling the same outfit...

I love clothing that can span an age range. Really, if you are going to take the time to make something by hand out of a quality yarn it should get as much wear as possible! The set was a big hit with both of my girls & really comfy to wear. It's knit in Serendipity Tweed which has fantastic stitch definition and a wonderful spectrum of colors to choose from.

Bev from Shipyard Point Glassworks graciously supplied the buttons. My original design had planned for a 5-button closure, but as the design evolved, I ended up with a simple 1-button cardigan. What to do with the other buttons??? That project is on my needles now & will be something that I can wear. Finally.

How do we get ahold of you and how can I get the pattern for "Orli"? I'm really liking it and really want to buy it from you.
