My closest cousin has a new baby granddaughter - her first and while I knit her one sweater - I really wanted to do more. So, following the same pattern as the first one, but with a smaller needle - I did this one in a pale-y pinkish color. Looking at it in the photo, I might just go back and rip out that bottom edge of stockinette stitch - I like it better with a garter stitch edge - what do you think?
I love the little fishie buttons but you know me and fish.....
And then this one - in a purple-y wool. The pattern called for it to be open in front, and I know that's usually better for babies, but I liked the closed look.
I've been on a deadline with these cause I am also making a quilt for a friends baby and all have to be done by the end of the month - actually the week before. So I had one and 1/2 week to finish these two sweaters, and finish the quilt. I might just make it. But this obsession is why no Animal Wednesday this week, no dinner made in this house for the past few nights and no laundry either. Too bad...sweaters are more fun!
Happy Sweater Wednesday!
