I finished baby #2’s sweater! Yellow is typically not my color, but I saw another one done in it and I got it stuck in my head. You know how that goes. Plus, I wanted to stretch myself and do something different. I picked a cotton blend in a tweedy yellow. Knitting with cotton was a bit different–your tension has to be a little tighter and it doesn’t bounce into shape like wool does. I am sure I will knit with cotton again…and I think it will be good on baby…but I probably prefer wool blends at this time.
I was a bit bummed with the details of the sweater getting lost in the yarn choice I made. (Which is somewhat frustrating when you ask specifically about that and are told that it will be fine. All well.) There are 3 lovely leaves that come down the front of the sweater that you can just make out on this one. I am going to eventually do the pattern again in Cascade 220 Superwash, so I am anxious to see the difference.
The buttons make me happy.
Bottom line=looking forward to putting it on baby come this fall!
