The Yarni lace baby sweater is finished. The pattern is finished, and I finally found a baby the right size (barely) to model. Here’s the adorably solemn Audrey really working it.
I must have taken about 20 shots, and she never cracked a smile, no toothy grin. Just a solemn stare at me and the rest of the world. Not even when her brother, the considerably less solemn but just as adorable Benjamin, demonstrated (among other things) how the tyrannosaurus rex walks
And how the T-rex eats grass.
Then we discussed whether or not carnivores would still eat grass or leaves. Audrey was still not smiling, but probably glad to have the sweater off on this warm morning. Thanks to Sheryl and Shelley for arranging the photo op.
I’m going to teach a class using this pattern in the fall as in introduction to lace knitting, and shaping within a stitch pattern (the underarms) so I also knitted the sweater in DK to fit a toddler, but my model is on vacation.
