Meet Karlos



Karlos is really Kate. Kate is a kitten designed by Jess Hutch for Knitty. I renamed Kate because a boy baby needs a boy kitten name. That's where Karlos came in. Besides I like rolling my tongue when I say it. Repeat. Kaaaaaarrrrrlllllos. Nice.

Karlos was one of the gifties for my sister, Embee (or rather, Drewski, her baby-to-be) and was gifted to her at her baby shower weekend before last in Connecticut.

Here are Karlos' specs:

Pattern: Kate the Kitten by Jess Hutchinson for Knitty
Yarn: 3 skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted in Blue Boy, Brite Blue and Lemon Drop
Needles: Clover Bamboo size 6 DPNs
Other ingredients: Polyfill, Clover Chibi for seaming and patience

I think she liked him!



More knitting to come tomorrow....must go! ;)

Karlos is adorable! I knit a Kate (renamed Buggy) for my son last year. Jess' patterns are so much fun to create. Don't they just come alive when you embroider the face? So cool. I love your color choice.
