knitting tops





How does one take a perfect photo of a 14 month old?

I think it has to be a magic moment that either happens or doesn't.
In my case, I took about 60 and then gave up.
This sweet little one is in constant motion. Here was the one second that she didn't move.

Pattern: Soulful Hues Girl's Cap Sleeved Spring Top (Modified Sleeves)
Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Premiere 50% Pima Cotton 50% Tencel
Needles: 5, 7, 9. I went down one needle size throughout pattern

I know it looks like it fits here but, honestly it doesn't. The yoke is huge. I tried it on the boy and found out it really is meant for a 3-5 year old
I already started knitting another one of these tops. This time in a bright shade of red like geraniums or tulips. I guess it will be a few years though till she wears them for real.
