Frog in knots

Knitting, knots and frogging.

It's a pirate's life for me!

When I heard an old friend had had a baby last year I instantly set about knitting for her. Well, not quite instantly. What does one knit for a goth baby? Obviously pink and frills were out and I didn't feel the love for black and frills, that's a bit too ominous for my liking, so I went with black and cute. Hopefully Jules will forgive me for the little bit of pink on her gothlet.

It's the Pirate Sweater from Adorable Knits for Tiny Tots by Zoe Mellor (again). Same mods as with the red one - I missed out the contrast cast on/off because that would have meant even more ends to sew in and do I not like ends. Fortunately I like the sweater enough to have made it twice in a short space of time. Right, now where's the rum?

No, you HAD to have pink in it. Dood, you can't tell what gender it is other wise! I think it's awesome.

That's so cute! If I had a baby girl, that's the kind of thing I'd love to dress her in. I'm sure it'll be appreciated.

Goth, but girly...I love it!

I also love the big smile on the skull, by the way. It's like, "I'm a pirate, but a happy pirate."
