It did give me time to finish some crafty projects that have been stalled for a while. Master J has been looking forward to a new sweater for quite some time, and who could deny this face!?!
This pattern is called "Lennix" by Rebecca Newman (available on Ravelry). Rebecca also has a Facebook page TinyLovely. I've been crushing on this pattern for a long time - I love the way she does the colour changes throughout with the different stitch. And I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
The yarn I used is from Rachel at FeatherBrush yarns (also on both Ravelry and Facebook). Isn't it stunning!! This yarn is a DK/8 ply wool yarn. The colour way Rachel dyed here was inspired by the character Captain America, which is one of Master J's favourite super heroes, so of course I had to find buttons that went with it too...
Master J couldn't wait to take it for a spin so we headed off to his favourite playground on a glorious cool clear early-Spring morning after the school drop off for his siblings. He was delighted to have the playground to himself and took off at run.
Lots of sliding!
And a trip to the playground would not be complete without some climbing!
And that is the first of my crafty blog posts... Hopefully the first of many!
