  • Building Barns

    It will not always be summer; build barns.
    -Hesiod

    Sometimes, the amount of yarn I have is terrifying. Sometimes, it's delightful. Lately I've been doing a bit of stash-diving, including knitting great projects with odd balls so odd (and small and partial) they weren't even on the stash spreadsheet. (They were, however, taking up space.) Before we get into all those "somethings for nothing," here are two adorable sweaters from sometime back in the summer.
    Stripey Baby Sweaters
    Pattern:
    Super-Natural Stripes by fPea (available free here)
    Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, conveniently found in the stash in complementary colors
    Needles: US 6
    Notes: Easy, fun, and super cute.
    Best Thing About This Project: It'd be hard to separate these sweaters. Any twin boys out there?

    This was a great project. So great, I almost contemplated making more (yup, I still have some Cotton Fleece out there), but two just about held my interest.

    I have 3 sets of twins in my life. All born within the past 2 years. I'm sure some will come your way. Lovely sweaters. Perfect in fact.

    No twins here... though the last two women to get pregnant in my building (of 5 apartments) had naturally conceived twins. There may be something in the water.
