Finally finished the second version of the baby cardi! Just in time for the baby shower too. The blue one is adorable but my tension was different than the yellow one so is smaller. It might be due to the different yarn, or it could be because I knit them months apart, I am not sure.
But, they are adorable, and I have finished the pattern too. Even love the little seagulls with the giant crickets chasing them, or the seagulls chasing the crickets, whichever you prefer.
I hope my friend likes the story of The Miracle of the Gulls woven into her baby’s sweater.
If anyone remembers, I mentioned that I wanted to try and make a topsy turvey doll of a seagull and cricket. Well, I did attempt it and am not pleased with the outcome. I am still thinking of working on it to make it better, but am putting it on hold for now. Here are some pictures of my first attempt.
