Get Ziggy.

The boys have been a bit cookoo lately which has seriously cut into my knitting time. But determined to have an FO, I stood at my kitchen sink this morning felting pom poms while making oatmeal (multi-tasking with hot water ;0) and trying not to be toppled by the kidlets who were literally running circles around my feet...and I did it! I finally finished Get Ziggy!


It's a simple cabled sweater that delivers the wow factor of cables without the concentration required for an allover pattern since the back and sleeves are knit in simple stockinette. I'll be writing up the pattern for Jujube & Lolo and plan to make it available in March.


I plan on putting another one of these babies on the needles right away for my little Lolo. The pattern needs just a few more tweaks (and an alternative hem and neckline that doesn't require i-cord ;0) and then I'll be ready to write it up.


Now, if only the boys would let me...

    Love the sweater. I'm really looking forward to all of your new patterns. As with so many other offers, would love to test knit.

    I love hearing about your boys. My only knitting time with a 3.5 and a 2 (on Thursday!) is after they go to bed. I stay up way too late these days!! Just wait until the little guy can outrun his brother. Then it really gets interesting...

  15. I love it! Can't wait for your patterns to be available in the Spring. I, too, have a little boy to knit for and he'd look adorable in Get Ziggy.

  17. I just LOVE your designs! And that neckline is so danged useful for getting on and off of a moving target.
    There must be a zeitgeist in the air, because I just designed a cabled square hat myself! Mine has bobbles on the ends, though, not pompoms, and a different middle, too. But still, cables & squares make an awesomely adorable kid hat!
