I’m still surprised that I pulled this one off. That I didn’t crash and burn into a big mess, the house is still livable and the health department isn’t knocking down my door. But as Carrie K. pointed out babies are small, and thats a good thing in so many ways!
I finished the T H I S Sunday sweater Saturday morning, sewed on the label and the buttons put it in the washer and dryer and wrapped it up Sunday morning. Just in time.
pattern found here
yarn:1.5 balls Lion Brand cotton ease in maize
size: about 6-12 months
needles: US 7
notions: 6 buttons (1 extra for the mom, just in case ; ) by Le Bouton #340 hook 320
started: June 25 2008
finished: June 28 2008
notes: The sweater was very well received. : ) Now, a few notes on the pattern. Its more of a guideline than a pattern. It does tell you how to knit the yoke but thats about it. I knit 4″ of the sleeves before the decreases. I wouldn’t say this is a beginner pattern, but that stitch pattern on the yoke is what drew me in!
Its nice to have the deadline knitting done when you have things to look forward to like a mother daughter softball game. Oyi. Lets just say I don’t suck horribly at sports, but I don’t exactly excel. Click on the photo below to watch a lovely video of me at bat on flickr.
Its a good thing Corra’s much better at softball than I am,
I am really, really terrible at softball, at least you made it to base! I swing at everything just to go sit down again.
What a great sweater and the buttons are fabulous! (And for the record, my own dad once told me I was hopeless at sports and he was indeed correct)
The sweater is adorable! And it reminds me I need to use my “from the needles of…” tags.
What a sweet little sweater! The last time I played software I was 9, I was in left field and my mom was laughing so hard when I came off the field because I was wearing the glove on the wrong hand. LOL!
The sweater came out great! Congrats for making your deadline!
Beautiful sweater you made – and in such a hurry. I’ll have to find out where to get such labels – looks so pro 🙂
I’m hopeless at sports, but then again, I’m handicapped by no depth perception.
I knew you’d make the deadline! The sweater is truly cute and your label! Awesome.
Lucky for you that little girl didn’t have her foot on the bag.
That is one really nice sweater.
See, I knew you could do it, now tell me where to get those tags, they are great…ciao
You are a wonder–the sweater is perfect, the recipient will never knew that you cranked that sucker out in about a day!!
