I am almost done knitting my first sweater for myself, and I can’t wait to see how the finished product fits and looks! Right now the body and the two sleeves are blocking on the floor of our guest room. Hopefully I’ll have it all ready to show off within the next week or so. In the meantime, however, I’m reminded that I haven’t shown photos of the last couple of little sweaters I made.
First up is this cute little number for Baby Zoe. I made this simple and sweet project for her baby shower back in August. Zoe was a big baby, so I’m glad her mom and dad were able to get this on her right away, since it turned out smaller than I had expected. (Pattern: Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater by Carole Barenys.)
Here’s little Zoe (at just a few weeks old) enjoying her sweater:
I actually had to set aside my other little sweater project to work on Zoe’s. That first one some readers may remember (and be thinking, what in the world ever happened with that?) as the prize in the giveaway I held way back in February. Christine was the lucky winner, and it took us a while to figure out what type of sweater to make for Sir Spencer. Then we decided it would be a fall/winter sweater, so I knew I had plenty of time to work on it. Anyway, after finishing Zoe’s sweater, I completed Spencer’s sweater. Here it is:
Isn’t that a cute little hoodie? (The pattern is Playdate Hoodie by Lion Brand Yarns.)
UPDATED at 10:20pm: Christine just posted a fabulous series of photos of her little man Spencer wearing his sweater. You simply must go check them out! I would love to someday be able to take photos like Christine’s.
[By the way, let me know if you want details on the yarn, needles, etc. That information is all on my Ravelry page.]
