I loved knitting this sweater. Every stitch was a pleasure, the pattern was easy and well written. I finished it so long ago, it seems, that I barely remember what the heck I thought as I was knitting it. I don't think I made any changes to the pattern except to make buttonholes instead of ties. I love buttons and was thrilled to find these fun and funky ones to put on. The yarn isn't bad, for a superwash. It knit smoothly and didn't lose too much of the drape and body after washing. We'll see how it holds up.
Ingrid, who was jumping the summer gun by playing Jasmine in her bathing suit on Friday, seemed pleased. The sweater just fits, so I think I'll be knitting another for her soon, hopefully this one gets her through the spring. All action, this is all I could get for photos. Just wait until you see my attempts with her brother Ben and his sweater!
