A few weeks back I picked up this gorgeous gradient sock yarn from Pigeon Roof Studios.
The colors are precious, and perfect for a princess.
I had an idea that this would make a gorgeous baby sweater and toyed between the Tea Leaves cardigan design and my go-to sweater: Elizabeth Zimmerman's February baby sweater.
The go-to pattern won, albeit a modified version of the original, using stocking stitch instead of the lace pattern. I chose to keep it simple so that the gradient yarn would be the star of the show.
This was a perfect project for this last week's plane journey to see my step daughter graduate from the University of Central Florida with a Biology degree magna cum laude. We are incredibly proud of her, and excited for what comes next as she embarks on a summer of research projects before heading onto post-grad study.
Congratulations to all the recent grads! Happy Mother's Day!
Wishing you a great week ahead,
