Whirligig | Celtic Cast On

A few weeks ago Moose’s brother got married. Moose and I were both in the wedding and of course T was there to watch the show.

It’s not very often you get to see us all dressed up, especially Moose, he hasn’t worn a suit since our wedding!

I knit T a little shrug to go with her dress for the day.

Pattern:Whirligig Shrug by Stephanie Japel

Yarn: Sirdar Baby Bamboo

Needles: 4mm circs

I picked up the yarn for this 6 days before the wedding…. cutting it close I know but it was a quick little knit and I still had 3 days to spare when it was done and dusted. I made the size 12-18mths with hopes that she will still be able to wear it this Fall over a t shirt or dress.


The little U shaped cables are the perfect little detail that make this shrug unique. Pair that with the bell shaped sleeves and you`ve got the perfect cardi for a special occasion. I love the versatility of this knit too, when put with jeans or a skirt it instantly becomes a more casual  look. Either way you put it this is a must knit for a little one.

After the recepetion I took T outside for some play time in the grass. This is were I got the majority of my pics as well as a few special ones that aren`t quite ready to be seen yet.


Playtime in the grass with a bowl full of cheerios…. all is right in the world!
