The merino/silk is now dry and waiting to get knit up into a birthday present for little n. I just finished her father's socks today (I even wove in the ends) so this is my only April gift left. I just can't get over how soft and lovely this yarn is.

This is going to be a lot of fun to knit with. And therein lies the problem. I'm not quite sure what to make.

I've narrowed it down to 3 options:
  1. February Baby Sweater
  2. Cardigan for Merry
  3. Coraline
If I made the February Baby Sweater, I'd probably change the lace pattern to vine lace from the Barbara Walker treasuries. I've got about 700 yards of yarn to work with so I don't know if I have enough for the hood in the Cardigan for Merry. Other than playing with the numbers, I probably wouldn't change much of anything about Coraline.

Thoughts? What should this Third Birthday present be?

Oh Coraline! Three year olds move around so much - that swingy, soft open design in your beautiful soft pink would be so fun for a little girl to twirl around in!

do your magic, Rue. little n picks february baby sweater. she says she would take a pink seal too. so you've got options.

I vote for the February baby sweater. But that's because I have a hard time visualizing Coraline for a baby.

Anything you make will be lovely! That yarn just shines!

Sounds like it's the FLS...but oh, I'd have to vote for Cardigan for Merry. Cables and little hoods. Would be so cute!
