I started knitting this sweater for Bean when I was pregnant. She just turned 4 months old last week and I finally got around to finishing it.
Happy 4 months, sweetheart!
Okay, back to the sweater! My goal was to finish it...well, when she could still fit into it. I haven't tried it on her yet, but it will still fit, so yay! Given how crazy life has been over the last several months, I consider this a pretty big achievement. :)
Pattern: Baby Sweater on Two Needles (February) by Elizabeth Zimmerman (Ravlink)
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton (50% merino wool, 50% cotton) in 943 (Flower) - 3 balls
I decided to knit the sleeves in the round (I mean, why not?) and go with just 3 buttons at the top only. I was excited to find these little pearly buttons that had just a tinge of lavender/pink. Perfect!
I wanted to knit a special baby sweater for Bean (well, at least one!) and I think I succeeded. Then again, how can you go wrong with EZ? You can't! I'm looking forward to seeing her wear it this fall and winter, and I look forward to knitting her more sweaters in the future. :)
What do you think about that, little lady?
