So this beautiful yarn sat in my stash for a while, and try as I may I could not convince her that it would make an awesome dress.

The combination of addi turbo needles and this yarn really is just super pleasurable knitting. It's almost a shame to come to the end. But I did. And it only used one skein of the yarn so I still have the other to knit up.

milo is a quick and simple knit, so easy a beginner could tackle it.
Knit seamlessly in the round from the top down on circular needles, it eliminates that sticking point for many knitters; seaming!!! Yep, no seaming at all to be done here.
milo is a great little vest for boys and girls alike, it comes in 9 sizings, from newborn (15 inch chest) to size 4 (23 inch chest). The pattern includes options for five different cables, including the popular owl cable. You can knit a different milo for every day of the working week.
Designed for 8 ply yarn, this is a great stash buster. The smaller sizes can be knit with just 50 grams of yarn. It is easily knit on a pair of 4mm 40 cm circular needles.
The 11 page pattern also comes with a photo tutorial which helps you create neat underarm cast offs.
So where can you get it?

This pattern again challenges the conventional construction of longies and requires no grafting; which is great for people who don't like grafting. Just between you and me, I am pretty shit hot at grafting and gain great satisfaction creating the perfect graft line in the crotch; hell, you should see me do a ribbed crotch!! ... sublime.
