Knitting – WIP – Marianne Mel Baby Sweater

I have two WIPs this week – the new one is a repeat of the first baby sweater I ever made. When I first started knitting, I stuck pretty much to scarves and hats, thinking I couldn’t make anything as complicated as a sweater. Then I happened upon Marianne Mel, an English designer who offers hundreds of free patterns and every one I have tried has turned out well, even with my limited experience. This is a pattern for a top-down sweater on which the body is completed and then the sleeves are added. I’m doing mine in Knit Picks DK yarn in a pale green shade with a #6 circular needle.

Here is a link to the pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mariannas-lazy-daisy-top-down-with-sleeves

The second WIP is a continuation of my Little Lacy Shawl from last week. It is about 75% finished and is at a stage where I can work on it in the evening while I watch TV (British shows on Acorn and Britbox are my favorites).

  1. Two wonderful projects, though I admit that green is my favorite color, so I might like that one a tad more. Your orange flowers in the banner are gorgeous!
