Tiny Tea Leaves x2
I bought the Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan pattern about a year and half ago. I decided to use the well-priced and durable Lion Wool-ease to make it since it was my first try with this pattern. Plus, the kids grow so fast I thought a less expensive (and washable) yarn would be a good choice. And the gauge worked out so I was excited. Then life got in the way and my knitting pace really slowed down. I did Hannah's first because it is a smaller size and I thought getting through the first one more quickly would motivate me. I finished it this past summer and I cast on Maya's. Then I really stalled. Sewing was so much more rewarding because I could finish a project in an evening or two! This fall I made myself do a little every week. I finally finished!! I love the finished products and the girls do too. Maya's looks like it will last a while but I think Hannah will only be able to wear hers this winter. Do I dare cast on another? I have the adult pattern as well and some VERY nice yarn to go with it. I think I might try that next.
