Finished: Trellis

I'm back! The cruise was fab...we had a wonderfully relaxing week with Thunky's family. I had such a great time doing other things that I didn't finish Trellis until the last full day on the boat. But I got it done!


The Specs:
-Pattern: Trellis, by Britta Stolfus Rueschhoff from Knitty
-Size: 12 months
-Yarn: Jaeger Matchmaker Merino Aran in color Tinsel, substituted for Rowan All Seasons Cotton
-Skeins: 4 and a bit @ 50g each
-Needles: size 7 bamboo
-Start to finish: December 5 - December 16
-For: Baby O. for Christmas

Notes: I loved knitting this pattern. The cables are fun, it knits up super-quick, and it's cute, cute, cute! The only problem I encountered was the swatching issue, but it turned out to be just fine. I didn't block the sweater much widthwise and we just rolled up the sleeves. The added bonus is that she’ll be able to wear it for longer. I rushed a bit to finish it up so the cables and the finishing aren't as tidy as I'd like, but I don't think the baby will care at all.

Final Verdict: Yay! It's a winner!

Here's the adorable nearly-naked baby action shot.


Stay tuned for more on the cruise, Thunk’s amazing knitting Grandma Betty, and Lou’s Christmas socks!


Glad you had such a wonderful time! Everytime I see Trellis, I forget it's a baby sweater and think "OMG I can't believe she's gotten so much done in such a short amount of time!!" Baby looks ADORABLE in it! Perfect:)

Can't wait to hear more about the cruise!!

It looks great Elli! I hope you had a lot of fun on your trip!

D@mn, that is one cute sweater! I love the way the buttoned cardigan and the old man look of babies work together -- kind of drives home how we come full circle ;-)

OMG, that's the cutest lil' baby and Trellis looks so adorable! Glad you had a wonderful getaway :)

What a lovely little jacket, beautiful!

Welcome back! I'm glad you had fun on your trip, it would have been a bad sign if you had knit the whole time!

The Trellis looks awesome, and that baby is freaking cute. Urge to breed...rising....
