Finished!


I started this baby sweater as I was doing Coco's ballet sweater. I was so happy that the pink yarn gave me the exact gauge EZ specified in Knitter's Almanac that I forgot that I didn't love the way lace stitches looked with it. After I finished the garter stitch yoke and a few lace repeats, I did remember, and I also felt quite guilty to be using totally acrylic, artificial yarn on a pattern lovingly written for wool. So, I squirrelled it away and tried to forget about it, but the lace pattern was so soothing, and there were only the two sleeve seams to sew up, and it seems to be raining baby girls, so I pulled it out and finished it, and happened to have the exact right buttons on hand.
Now I can send it on to California.

This beautiful creation deserves at least one comment and since I have jumped through several google hoops, I'll try to post this note in praise of a perfectly beautiful baby garment. I don't see how you do anything more beautiful - for child or parents. Instant heirloom!

Love,
Nana
