I have a confession, Knitting, I never 'got it'
Don't get me wrong I love jumpers and cardigans but I never understood what it was all about. I now understand. I found out a few weeks ago that my best friend and my sister in law are having babies in March and it instantly took me back to the nicest gift and the nicest piece of clothing my son ever received when he was a baby. I used to teach dance at my sisters dance school and one of the little girls parents mum had knitted the most beautiful baby blue hooded looped cardigan and Bailey looked stunning in it. He looked like a little baby eskimo!o
when I found out about the two beautiful babies I desperately wanted to make the same cardigan for their bundles of joy but I got my mother in law to look at the pattern and we decided as a beginner I'd never be able to make it, so I've now decided to do a baby checkered jumper from the simply knitting magazine this month and herein lies my question:
The suggested wool for the pattern is Sublime Baby Cashmere silk Merino DK, Although this yarn looks very beautiful it seems very expensive and due to my current capabilities I don't know whether it would be worth the money, I also don't know how good this wool is. Can anyone suggest an alternative and also your opinions on this wool?
Thanks for any help!!!!
