baby sweater

Finally, I have a post for you that isn’t about sock knitting! (Although sock knitting is definitely occurring.. don’t get the wrong impression. ;-) I finally finished the baby sweater that was set back by the broken needle, and I’m really happy with the results.

Ironically, I took these pictures in the earliest morning sunlight, so the colors look little bluer and less bright than they are in person. This pattern is an excellent one for multi-colored sock yarn. The simple texture pattern really shows off the colors, and it’s just easy-yet-engaging enough to…
