Just right.

And the MadelineTosh in Filigree is beautiful. It’s 90 degrees outside, but I may need to wear it anyway.

Finished Object: Tulip Baby Sweater

This sweater is the last in the series for a friend’s baby. Bootees, hat with ears, crocheted blanket, and, finally, Tulips.

Brown and green match the chosen theme colors. I made the 12-month size, hoping for a good fit this winter.

The yarn is 75% acrylic/25% wool, so it took some direction during blocking and should be fine in the washer/dryer.

I hope they both enjoy it!

While at the store to pick out baby sweater yarn, I was mesmerized by some MadelineTosh DK in Filigree. An intriguing combination of mostly yellow-green, with teal and golden accents. I left it on the shelf that day, knowing that I was knitting on a deadline and it would be hard to resist. But, now, it’s on the needles for… honey cowl number three!
