This had to have been the easiest, quickest, and most satisfying thing I’ve knit in a long time. The first two aspects are pretty self explanatory: Ysolda Teague created a wonderful pattern that’s simple to execute and small enough to make in a day, seriously. But what made this such a gratifying project was that it wasn’t made for me.
Lately, I’ve been a little consumed with selfish knitting. Ok, ok, a lot consumed. But this was different; I had someone special in mind. While making things for yourself can be immensely satisfying, there really is something in making a gift for someone other than yourself. Granted, I haven’t met her yet, but I’m hoping that when she enters this world, she will feel all the love around her.
Oh and Mom, I just want to clarify that it isn’t my baby. You can sleep safe now.

Pattern DetailsPattern: Elijah by Ysolda Teague Yarn: KnitPicks, Swish DK in Marble Heather, some stash yarn (have no clue…) for the heart. Needles: US 3 [3.25mm], Circular Modifications: None, besides doing duplicate stitching for the bum heart. Notes: The pattern calls for DPN’s but I think it’s completely doable with circulars. Recommend to a Friend: Yes, yes, yes! Knit one for you, or share the love and knit it for someone special.
