FO report: Miss Abbey for my girls

Technically this is a throwback Thursday post as well since these projects were finished last year but I never blogged about them.

One of the things that excited me about having another girl was being able to knit them matching things!  Last year, I bought this cotton yarn on extreme sale!  I can't remember how much I paid for it but it was less than $10 for a full bag of it!  I wasn't sure what I was going to knit with it however was excited when I found the perfect pattern.  So here I present to you two Miss Abbey tops for my girls.
Project details
Pattern: Miss Abbey by Terri Kruse
Yarn: Laines du Nord Papiro
Cast on date for Carmen's: June  9 2013
Finished date for Carmen's: July 14 2013
Cast on date for Maria's: July 16 2013
Finished date for Maria's: September  1 2013
Notes: I love how these came out!  I was worried about how I would like knitting with cotton because usually I'm not a fan.  The way this yarn is constructed made it have a little bit of stretch and that helped with the knitting process.   The pattern is knit from the top down, is easy to follow and a quick knit.  I would definitely recommend the pattern to anyone who wants something simple or is new to knitting garments. I still have some more of it so I hope to make something else as well.

Happy Knitting!


  1. Adorable, Gnat! The sweaters AND the girls. : ) Great pattern!

  2. Your girls are so cute I'm sure they'd rock ANYTHING, but I do love the matching handknits. It's great to see you blogging again and I'm sorry I haven't been able to comment more often.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I appreciate them all!
