Yarn Along – Milo complete!

My first Milo. My first pattern! It’s off the needles!

Oh I love this boy so much. I think he likes his first Milo.

Blocking has made a really big difference to the fit. I cast off the arms too tight but it totally helped ease the shoulder straps. I made a few little mistakes but I am looking forward to……my next Milo!

I started this last night and am onto the increases. Feel so much more confident this time and I think my face looks less contorted and stressed while I knit away! Am making it a bit bigger so it fits into the Winter.

On the reading front, I have been studying various knitting techniques on the internet and have become an avid YouTube viewer, ha! I’m still loving Lori’s blog and have been enjoying reading about her Alaska and Shetland adventures along with being inspired by her knitting. Hope she will be blogging again soon, before I run out of posts.

Joining with Ginny and the other super talented knitters for Yarn Along. Thank you kind visitors for your lovely comments. They make my day. Big thank you also to Ginny. Without your confidence boost I would still be procrastinating and dreamily gazing at the lovely photos of your Milo vests!

    Oh, the vest(s) are wonderful! How fun!

    Dishcloths are the extent of my knitting, but I enjoy them and it is an easy, basic thing to pick up and work on.

    I’ve loved checking out a few projects each week, since I found Yarn Along. It is inspiring me and I think, sometime, I will try my hand at something else besides dishcloths. I have to think about things for a while! :)

    Have a great Wednesday!

    Oh, I forgot to say, the milo in your post title caught my attention. We are Kansas wheat farmers, but we also raise some milo each year for a fall crop and crop rotation.

    When I think of milo being finished I think of a cut field! :)

      Glad you like the Milo vest – maybe one might be a good project for you if you decide to try some clothing? I have just been learning about the Milo crop from an Internet search (I had never heard of the cereal) so thanks for mentioning that and for popping by to say hello.

      Hi Angela. Thank you for your lovely words. The green is a gorgeous colour. I can’t wait to see how the new yarn works out. It is so much easier to work with than the last one. My finger got really sore pushing the stitches off the needle but this new yarn is like butter in comparison! Thank you for popping by.
