Knitting News

 


How has your creative pursuits been this week?

I've been making great progress on my grandson's Christmas sweater. I was torn on what size to make. My choices were 1-2T or 2-4T. He already fits into 2T so I did the larger size and now wonder if this will be to big. My brain says better to be too big than too small and I continue to knit away.

I finished the first sleeve last night and hope I finish the second sleeve tonight.

What are you working on this week?

  1. When knitting for children, I always knit larger. Christmas is still a couple of months away and I bet it will fit him just fine. I agree with better too big than too small!

  2. Definitely better to go big. Little kids grow FAST!

  3. Another vote for the larger knit for your grandson! They grow much too quickly! :)

  6. I think your brain is guiding you in the right direction. As someone else wrote, your grandson will grow before Christmas making a little more generous size seem not so big. What a handsome color for a sweater.

  7. Good call on the sizing. I made two sweaters for my grandson last winter and he has already outgrown them both! Fortunately there is the little brother who will wear them. I am slogging away at sleeves this week.

  8. I agree bigger is better. Especially with childrens clothing. I like the color of the sweater. Looks like a good one for everyday wearing.

  9. You are very wise knitting the larger size. I'm crocheting a scarf at the moment. The aim is to clear the few started projects and then get back to my jumper. Cx

  10. I have the same outlook. Better too big than too small. He will grow into it. That is a beautiful color yarn by the way.
