For Wee Ones

The wee Austin Hoodie I was working on is finished.

This booth sample debuted last weekend in Connecticut.

This was a fun little project with interesting details.

In addition to a healthy amount of stockinette this design includes a woven stitch band and 1 x 3 ribbing on the yoke and cuffs.

It's topped off with an adorable hood also in 1 x 3 ribbing.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Lillian, colorway Ribbit.  Lillian is a 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight yarn that makes a versatile, easy-care sweater - perfect for little ones.  The wee Austin Hoodie Kit is available in 4 sizes and a range of colors.  Note that the Ribbit colorway is currently exclusive to the kit.  As soon as there's a break in the action, this kit will be available on the website.

Today is the last day of the Holla Knits Blog Tour.  Dirty Water DyeWorks is still offering free shipping.  Simply enter "Holla Knits" in the comments section of the shopping cart, and your shipping charges will be refunded.  Be sure to check in with the other stops on the Tour for additional specials and giveaways.

We've had some much-needed rain this past week so it's only fitting that my color inspiration photo for the week includes raindrops.

The promise of pink.
