In Threes

I am sorry for the unexpected hiatus that the blog has been on for the past few weeks. I lost my bag with my knitting, my camera and all my other important belongings 2 weeks ago. Luckily someone I know picked it up and held on to it for me until I saw them a few days ago.Ā  šŸ˜€ So now that my world is back in order I can once again start blogging again.

The knitting project that was missing in action was my InThrees Baby Cardigan by Kelly Herdrich. The pattern is downloadable on Ravelry for $6 US.Ā  I am planning on making 3 of these sweaters so it totally was worth the price. The one is going to be for my nieces 2nd birthday, which is this Saturday coming up.

Ooh, so Springy!

Progress so far on my first In Threes Cardigan.

I am knitting it out of Knit Picks Swish Worsted in the peapod colorway. This is the first time I am using this yarn and I really like it so far. I think it is super soft and has great stitch definition. Plus the color is so bright and Spring like.

Right now I am hoping that I have enough yarn to finish. I bought 3 skeins of yarn in hopes of knitting a size 3t. I have knit 1.5 inches (4cm) below the armpit and have come to the end of the second skein. With 5.5 inches (14cm) still to go I am more than a little nervous.

  1. It looks great! I love in threes – so quick and easy but looks lovely. I love the colour too. You seem to have such great yarn available in the States. My husband is going to the US for work in a month or so and I’m going to send him with a big shopping list šŸ™‚ So lucky that someone saved your bag for you!

    • You may want to tell your husband that if he can’t fit all the yarn and other goodies you want in his suitcase that he should ship his dirty laundry home and pack your yarn. šŸ˜‰
      I can imagine that ordering from anywhere must be difficult for you. Does Australia not have many yarn manufactures?

  2. I’m so glad you got your bag back with your camera and knitting! I love the In Threes pattern, and have it in my queue to knit for my first grandchild. ! love the green you are knitting yours in!

  3. OHMYGOSH! How lucky that your friend grabbed your bag. Welcome back to blogging.

  4. Wow, it must have been so scary to lose that bag! I’m glad you got it back. That cardigan looks really pretty – great color.
