Will Knit For Zen

I knit to relax. To forget the hard stuff, and think about happy things. Ive recently been knitting baby sweaters. My sister is due in July with her first, and even though its too early to know if baby is a boy or a girl, Ive already knit a couple sweaters. One of the sweaters is the Baby Wrap Crossover Cardigan. I used a lovely MCN yarn I got on etsy called Mushroom Posh Merino Sport. Its super soft and squishy, and in nice a gender-neutral color pallette.


Now Im working on a sweater for a swap on ravelry with the Baby Cakes group. Unfortunately I can’t share any project photos yet, because its a surprise swap, but I can tell you that its adorable. Im knitting for a little girl with some fabulous Madelinetosh yarn and its coming along nicely. After I ship the package I will share photos.


About zenren

I am in my mid-thirties, and blissfully married to a guy named Dave with whom I have a 17 year old daughter named Anela, and she is my world. I'm the RN Clinical Nurse Manager of a Transitional Care Unit where I work extremely hard to make my nurses and my patients happy. I knit shawls, and hats, and baby sweaters. I obsessively use Burt's Bees lip balm. I love spending weekends on our little slice of lake in northern Minnesota, and laying in the grass near the bonfire on a cool spring night with the kiddo watching for shooting stars while eating gooey s'mores with sticky fingers. I enjoy wrapping up in over-sized, snuggly warm sweaters in the autumn and going for walks with the smell of fallen leaves and trees blazing with color. I read a lot of self-help books. I frequently do not answer my cell phone. My husband adores me because of my quirks, not in spite of them, and I do my best to appreciate that. Im learning to meditate, and have a weakness for a good cup of tea. My nephew is adorable, and brings me so much joy. I knit to wind down, stay sane, and create beautiful things.

    I just posted something very similar – knitting to unwind after the work day/week. 🙂

    Congrats on your upcoming niece of nephew. The sweater is adorable and I love the buttons!
