Hi everyone,

My name is Anny (aka, annypurls) and I am the proud mama of a delightful 2 year old and a sweet as pie 4 month old. Both boys. Julian and Logan (aka, Jujube and Lolo ;0)

I'm always knitting for baby (and toddler ;0) and have been lurking around this blog for ideas for a while. I've been so inspired by everyone's trellis' and presto change-o's that I just had to join in on the knit-along fun! I just started my trellis and love it!

It's such a fabulous little quick knit that I really don't know why I didn't knit it before. I've got half a front and sleeves left to go before I can consider this one an FO. I just hope it fits Lolo when it's done...

I knit the 6 month size but it looks a little small. I am using the recommended Rowan All Season's Cotton that I purchased for a song from Cucumber Patch (even considering shipping from the UK, there are always great bargains to be had there...I got a 10-ball bag of this stuff for $20!)

I'm knitting up the button band side now and am thinking of reducing the number of buttons... Just need to figure out where to put them. I'm thinking of using just 3 and placing them on every big cable cross (row 9). Hmmm.

Happy knitting!

PS - If you are looking for the perfect little easy knit for a toddler or pre-schooler, I just self- published a pattern for the cutest little buddy bags. See details on my blog.

Welcome! Your boys are adorable and your Trellis looks fantastic. Your button modification plan sounds totally reasonable. Can't wait to see how it comes out!

Anny! I read your blog :) I love the buddy bags, they are SO cute! :) Welcome, welcome! Can't wait to see the Trellis when you are done with it.

That's such a beautiful shot of your boys--sweet sleeping angels! Have you knit with the All Seasons Cotton previously? It looks lovely.

That is such a gorgeous sweater. Looking forward to seeing it when it's finished!

Oh, I love those beautiful...what gorgeous children you have. I love those cables, too. Never knit with the cotton before, but it looks great. I should try it.
