It was Marilyn’s 1st birthday party today. I finally got to hand over her monster pants and they were a real hit! Sadly the matching cardigan I made was a little snug… I tried to adjust a 10ply pattern to suit the 8ply yarn I used in the pants. Sadly it’s a ‘slim’ fit.’ Oh well,’ I said. ‘Your next kid can wear it’. It was a bit disappointing to me and no doubt the parents. The pants only took a week to knit, the cardigan 2 weeks…
I’ll just have to make her another cardigan. But first, Still light, I can’t forget about you.
It was funny watching Marilyn crawling around with her little monster bottom. I can highly recommend this as a fun knit.

Oh I love those monster pants, they look fantastic. The cardigan is gorgeous too and pity it is a snug fit. I wonder if you soaked it and blocked it out a bit if it would fit a bit better.
Thanks Sue. My sister insists the cardigan fits, it just needed the buttonholes to be made a little smaller, which I fixed today when I was lucky enough to get another visit from my smiley niece. Swoon 🙂
eeee adorable. luckily it’s winter now, so she just needs to wear the cardi all the time until it warms up!
exactly! … or until Aunty Sonia knits another… whichever comes first!
