Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Toddler Guernsey Gal Done

Knit at a tight gauge with lots of stitch patterning, this little sweater for CIC was not a quick project. But it was fun.

The picture in the pattern book doesn't do it justice. It was glanced at and ignored many times though the years I've had this book.

Like most all of Kathy Zimmerman patterns, it's a work of art to my eyes and I had fun knitting it.

Click on picture to see the detail better.

Pattern: Guernsey Gals by Kathy Zimmerman in Best of Knitter's Arans and Celtics.

Knitting the smallest size, about 24 inches around. Modified pattern to knit sweater in one piece. Added underarm gussets.

Yarn: Cascade 220, 100% wool worsted weight

Color: 7808 Violet

Needles: Options #6

Not the best Oriole picture I've taken this year, but surely the funniest.

Check out the legs. He appears to be double jointed. No wonder these bird have no problem weaving a nest in the highest tree tops.
