Show and tell: little sweaters.

Time for another round of show and tell, where we share projects that started life as yarn at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. The last group was made up of adult sweaters, so for today, let’s look at some baby sweaters, those quick-to-knit garments that are no less satisfying for their small size.

Gwen knit the striped pullover below using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted. This yarn is ideal for baby things that need to be machine-washable and soft as can be.

Not all baby things need be machine-washable, however – many parents are up for hand-washing special handknits. Katherine has been busy knitting little sweaters in Fibre Company Arranmore and Arranmore Light, one for her daughter and another for a friend’s baby-to-be.

Above is herĀ “Fisherman’s Pullover,” a cozy sweater with a big swath of garter stitch down the front, and below is herĀ “Gidday Baby,” a cardigan with a striped garter stitch yoke.

Thanks for sharing these little sweaters, folks, and thanks to all of you who start your projects with a trip to our shop!
