Finally!

Finally I am posting about knitting :0 Charlotte likes it too.


This week I finished a project that I started for Charlotte on our Hawaii trip.  This is the baby sweater from Knitty Summer 2008.  I used less than 2 balls of Shelridge Farm wool that I picked up at the Fiber Festival in Allegan at least two summers ago (Yeah for finally using up some stash yarn!).  This is a beautiful and soft DK weight wool from Canada.
I debated putting on buttons instead of the little ties in front, but in the end I didn't feel like putting the thought into modifying the pattern.  It's probably for the best because once I double knotted those ties - there was no way Charlotte was busting her way out of that sweater.


I think this was a wonderfully easy pattern to read and follow.  The false picot edging on the sleeve and waistlines is impressive and the detail around the shoulders was a classy touch.
