FO UPDATE!!! Baby Boy Cabled Pullover
October 2nd UPDATE: the mother put my gifted sweater on her baby boy for his first ever 3-month photo session! I'm so proud! See photos below! Isn't he adorable? [Photos are professionally taken, thus the trademark/watermark in the photos!]

The Yarn: Silky Tweed
The Pattern: SIRDAR BOOK #302 CHINO KNITS
Size: 3 mo.
Giftee: The Varriano baby boy due in July

This one was really fun! It went together in a few days! The blocking really improved the feel of the yarn. It wasn't scratchy in the first place, but washing and rinsing in Unicorn Fiber Wash and Rinse really made it soft!

That baby is never going to need clothes! I hope it's cold enough he can wear all these lovely sweaters and hats before he outgrows them.

Love the sweater!

We live in the Pacific Northwest! No shortage of cold weather!
In the past 60 days, we have only had 23 days that hit 60 degrees! We're still using the heat in our house!

Two nights ago, we had to bring out our snow plows on Snoqualmie Pass! Two feet of overnight snow!

This weekend, our Mt Rainier got socked with 70 mph winds/blizzard with 5 feet of snow! It killed a day hiker, and his wife and buddy were hospitalized with frostbite and hypothermia.

They were reportedly experienced hiker/climbers. They had summited Mt. Rainer previously. The mountain makes its own weather. They underestimated the mountain. Probably poorly outfitted. Mt Rainier headquarters had reported that snow was expected.

First of all, that sweater is so very handsome. What a lucky baby boy!

Secondly....SNOW? Ahhhh that sounds heavenly (coming from someone who's been in 100+ weather too many days this June)
