In Threes

It has been hot, but I still like to knit while I watch TV at night. So I need to knit things that aren't too heavy or big. I have a few random skeins of Malabrigo in the stash and I know a few people have made an In Threes Cardigan from just one skein. 
The pattern seems to run large so a cast on an 18m size hoping it will fit Olive the rest of the year.
I almost made it, I ran out of yarn halfway though binding off an had to use all the tiny extra bits that were used to tie the skein up.
I found three perfect buttons in the stash left over from a vest I knit for Eva.
I loved knitting this so much I have cast on one in yellow.

That is a gorgeous green! I keen tossing up whether or not to bust out the needles and knit one of these gorgeous little cardigans for one of my little nieces. I think your beautiful emerald version has made it a definite on the to do list!

Olive will look totally adorable in that little cardigan. The green is such a gorgeous color. I knit when it is hot as well as I feel weird if I dont knit for a day!

Love it. You make the most adorable clothing for your daughters. I hope they appreciate how lucky they are. I think they do, based on their smiles.
