I couldn’t find the sweater anymore, but I did find your lovely blog and got lost in it’s pages for a while. I will have to make the darling treehouse with my daughter…..and the confetti cookies too! Thank you as well for reminding me of Debbie Bliss. I used to knit more when my children were babies. Baby clothes are fast to knit up. I still make hats, but perhaps I will have to embark upon a little girls sweater as the weather cools down this fall! Thanks again for your nice response!

I would love to see what you make, if you use the tutorial. When not out on picnics, we’ve been using these napkins all Summer.

Regarding the sweater, “Gap saves the day, again.” I found this sweater this past Spring on the Gap UK online site when I discovered that the Gap was now shipping (reasonably) to Sweden (where we live.) I would assume it was sold in the US, as well but don’t know. This is a sweater that both Mother and Daughter easily agree on.

I’m weak for these color tones and stripes, too — it seems that I’m probably always made sure that she has had a sweater in this color way from the time she was a new born. If you’re a knitter, I remember knitting something something with Debbie Bliss’s cashmerino yarn with one of her patterns that was great. I I LOVE her yarns and patterns which are easy enough for even a basic, basic knitter, like myself, can do. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Continued happy Summer wishes.

And lovely sweater. Where did you find the cream and striped sweater if you don’t mind me asking?

What an amazing summer you are having! We’ve had many cloud 9 blanket picnics at home and at the beach (since returning) since making this project — plus a plethora of cloud napkins the kids and friends have supplies us! I am definitely keeping a stash of these napkins on hand year around.

(I so wish I had thought of this fold-up, cloud blanket when the kids were babies! I can just imagine a “cloud 9 baby” laying on this if the white side were velour or a soft fabric. I would love to see how this tutorial is used! Thank you, Gabrielle for the chance to share.) Cloud 9 wishes!
