miss korrigan

How do you photograph an almost 18 month old that never sits still anymore ?

"Mom, can't you see I have better things to do ?"
 Well, in the end I had to bribe her with my Huglight ...
Pattern: Miss Korrigan, by Solenn DRN
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä (1 skein)
Needles: 3.5 mm
Size: 2 years
Ravelry link

I only had a skein of this yarn, which I bought in Lapland almost 2 years ago. There was only this one supermarket in Yllas, where we stayed, but it had everything you could possible imagine. Indispensable things like Moomin mugs, for example, and of course Finnish yarn. Got to love a supermarket like that (and let's not talk about how much I miss Finnish bread *sigh*) ... I had planned to knit a cardigan with it for Sara when she was born, but never did, so I thought I'd use it now. So glad I did, because there wasn't enough yarn and that's why it ended up being short sleeved (if I had waited longer I'd probably only be able to knit her a vest or something). The pattern is really nice, and it comes in so many sizes I can see myself knitting a couple more in the future.
