You may remember that a while ago I knitted a cardigan for Rascal with wool that I had bought for Scallywag.
It wasn't a question of it not being a "boy colour" or anything like that, it was just a question of the yarn being a better colour for my daughter's colouring than my son's.
I felt a bit guilty that poor Scallywag was missing out, so the minute that I started knitting, I signed up for the Red Ridinghood Yarn Bonus Masculine Yarn Club. I didn't know what colour of yarn I would get, but I knew it would be beautiful.
When it arrived, I smiled- it was PERFECT! In many ways it is a similar colour to the original yarn that I bought, but the shades that make up the finished colour are far more suitable for my boy's colouring.
This was my second time knitting a Milo and my second time knitting cable.
I really enjoyed doing the owl cable. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be and Scallywag is very proud of his wee feathered friends!
It was such a rewarding knit, and it's awesome to see my wee man charging about wearing it. I must admit that the milo really suits him and he gets loads of compliments when he wears it.
The great news is that I have wool left over, so I'm hoping that its enough to knit him a beanie.
