a second Milo attempt

I wasn’t entirely pleased with my first Milo. The colourwork section looked pixelated in the merino yarn (so much so that my Mum declared the elephants to be “such cute piglets”), and it pulled in quite a bit.

So even though I’m told Merino is the best yarn for babies, for my second attempt at a cute Milo I decided to go with a woolier yarn.

And skipped the colourwork band altogether (I was really traumatised by how much it had pulled in!).

I do, however, want to adorn this with a cute motif. Something small, but cute, giving it just enough personality to make it stand out from a plain vest. I am inspired by this version of another baby vest pattern and am determined to duplicate stitch a whale motif (something like this) in the lower corner. I just haven’t dared to do it yet…

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
