There's not much more to say about this sweater. It's a tried-and-true pattern that I know the recipient (one of my coworkers) will love, the yarn is easy to care for and in her favorite color, and the actual knitting was a pleasure. This sweater is entirely seamless, knit from the top down. I used a thicker yarn than called for and the needle size suggested on the ballband for a sweater that's really for a one- to two-year-old than a baby -- my ideal in giving baby clothing as a gift, as babies outgrow their clothing so quickly.
Since finishing this sweater, I'm down to only my Chevron Scarf, and I'm determined to finish it soon. I am itching to cast on for another sweater, however, especially since picking this up at Knit One earlier this afternoon.
The Mister has decided that his Seamless Hybrid, while it fits well, is just a tad bit too short, so he'll be getting another one in this dark gray Cascade 220. I couldn't leave the store without a little something for myself, especially because I was paying with the cache of gift cards I've somehow accumulated in the past six months, so I found this:
Two ounces of merino/corriedale roving in shades of blue, violet, and yellow -- just enough to keep me from going crazy with the natural BFL roving I have when my wheel finally arrives.
