But! I have a new baby coming in February, so there's reason to revisit many of these projects!
I started with an easy one—you know, to get the ball rolling—a sweater that I found like this:
Almost completely knit, just not sewn up (it also needed a button band and neckband, so there was a little bit of knitting left to do). It was intended for my oldest daughter to wear when she was about one (she's almost six now). Sigh.
I was particularly motivated to finish this sweater because I had used one my favorite yarns, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, a yarn that should never, ever be wasted. (Of course, isn't that true of all yarn?)
I remember that I had made the pattern up as I went along, so I'd have to make up the button and neck bands as well. I decided on a simple crocheted edge with only two buttons at the top. I might change that in the future and have buttons run all the way down the length, but we'll see.
In any case, here's how it looks finished:
Not bad! And you have to love a project that can be finished in less than an hour!
Happy New Year eveyone! And as always, happy knitting!
