Fresh off the Needles: A Tunic for Adelina
I did it! I finished my first knitting project fro Adelina. It wasn't too difficult, I only had to visit YouTube a few times. Even better it is finished before Adelina has outgrown it!
I first saw this pattern on Soule Mama's blog. I instantly fell in love, and since at that time I knew a little girl was in my future, I promptly ordered the pattern from Ravelry. I made made it in the 9 months size, figuring it would fit baby girl right around six months which will land us right in the middle of winter.
I used the same soft merino wool that I used to make a sweater for the boys with a couple years ago. I love this wool, I purchased it at our local fiber festival. It is from local sheep, and hand spun and dyed into a very nice sport weight. You can find all of my ravelry project notes (here).
I can't wait for little girl to grow so she can wear it. But, then again no need to rush...
