Part of me is depressed and part of me is excited that this is the first knitted item I have finished this year. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but it is JULY! Yikes. Oh well, small victories, right?
Anyhow, in order to fulfill my desire to knit for some expectant friends and actually finish something I started a baby sweater on size 10.5 needles. It went fairly quickly. The yarn is some mystery cotton/acrylic blend from my grandmother. I have no idea where the ball band is currently, but I know the yarn is machine washable. I try to give gifts for babies that can be machine washed.
Here it is……………
Of course that is my duct tape self holding up the sweater.
It was knit from the bottom up with garter stitch edges, the sleeves knit in the round and joined to the body to finish the garter stitch yoke. The pattern was just a guess as you go type knit so hopefully it will fit a baby.
