siren song (or, yet another milo!)

Because I couldn't resist the siren song of a plump skein of Chickadee yarn and the promise of another sweet (and tiny!) vest, I knitted one more Milo. It has become a uniform of sorts for my boy, keeping him just warm enough on cool spring mornings and then getting tossed aside for afternoon playtime in the sunshine. Thank goodness this vest looks the same in front and back; I may occasionally reverse it after particularly messy encounters with graham cracker crumbs. Good as new, almost. The more he wears his Milo, the more I love it. It's easy to take on and off, which is a godsend with a toddler. And there's something about that simple garter stitch that makes me smile.

I'm thinking now of projects for spring. I cast on a pair of afterthought heel socks this weekend, and I've got a couple skeins of sock yarn from frogged projects all hanked up and ready to wash. So, I'm on the lookout for more sock or shawl patterns to knit. Do you have any favorites you'd recommend? I'm also trying to figure out something handmade for my boy's Easter basket. A little knitted something, most likely.

This rainy morning warrants lighting a candle and curling up for a few minutes of sock knitting, so I'm off! Have a good one!


  1. He is gorgeous! Blue is his color. What a cute vest.

  2. Love the photos! I've started rooting around in my stash and am embarking on a one-skein challenge. You should join me! xo

  3. Can't go wrong with a classic vest in a blue color like that. :)
    I'm thinking of knitting something like this nest, in some brown scraps I have, to celebrate Easter.
