Blue Wyatt

28 Mar

  • Pattern: Wyatt
  • Yarn:  Cascade Yarns Dolce
  • Size: 3, with length added
  • My Ravelry Notes: here

This is the second time I have knit this pattern.  The middle girl saw the sweater on the counter one day and asked for one for herself, “in blue, because blue is my favorite color”.   I would be happy to make you a sweater.

My children are happily digging in the empty potters around the patio looking for rocks with their digging supplies (read: hot pink shovels they convinced me they needed to “help” me with the garden) .  Before that, they were digging up dandelions, which they call sunflowers, and planting them in the vegetable garden.  Being occupied together is really good news to me because they were really, I mean really, loud this afternoon while playing doctor to the dinosaurs.  I believe stegosaurus hurt someone with his tail.

These are the days I am so happy we have together.

      Yes, who would not want hot pink shovels. Thank you for the kind words about Sophie. I am glad we are getting to know each other!

    What a beautiful color with her hair! I love the boatneck style. Wish this pattern came in adult sizes too.

      Thanks Ellen! I was thinking about this sweater in an adult size while I was doing dishes this morning, and I really think you could do it! The pattern is really straight forward and is essentially a rectangle with extensions for the arms and then reduced back to a rectangle. It would take some math and harnessing a little inner Elisabeth Zimmerman but it would be fantastic when done.

    What a gorgeous color! Sweet sweater! And my kids, too, call dandelions sunflowers! 🙂

    Such a lovely shade of blue! She is just the cutest thing with her little blonde bob…

    Absolutely gorgeous blue. Your daughter looks perfect in it. I’ve had dandelion seeds planted in the kitchen garden too, but you are right. It probably is a quieter pursuit than their usual games.

      Thank you Cheryl! I’ll always take their gardening pursuits.
