After (far) too long, my seventh sweater of 2012 is finished! It’s almost like cheating, because it’s so tiny and should have taken no time at all. Instead, this little thing slept with one sleeve for a couple of months. I kept putting it off by telling myself that it was useless until the weather got colder. Well, guess what? The weather’s colder. So yesterday, I sat down and didn’t stop until I was finished. And, not surprisingly, it only took a couple of hours.
The recipient is my now 3 month old nephew, Curran. I don’t have any photos of him wearing it yet, but I know he will rock it with such style. I mean, how could he not?
The pattern is Baby Sophisticate, and I used Lion Brand’s Organic Cotton. So soft, and machine washable – perfect for a baby knit! And let’s talk about those buttons. A couple of years ago at SAFF, I came upon a lady who was selling a crapton of her old buttons for really cheap (like 10 cents each cheap), and she had a bunch of these cute vintage leather ones. I took them all (a whole bag full), and have been
hoarding saving them. They are just perfect for this little sweater, and I have so many more to use and can’t wait to find the perfect project to put them on!
