I am, at best, a mediocre knitter, and so I am always thrilled - and more than a little surprised - when I knit something that actually resembles the photo in the instructions. This little sweater has, um, an issue or two...but it was a great "learning curve" project. It's knit all in one piece, but there was enough sewing up to do that I was able to finally figure out mattress stitching. I knit this in an oatmeal-colored alpaca, as it is incredibly soft (if impractical...), and I added a shiny (and somewhat sparkly) organdy ribbon. The sweater actually ties in the back, but I tied it on the side for photo purposes.
Yarn = Frog Tree 100% Alpaca Wool
Pattern = "Wrap Top" from Easy Baby Knits by Claire Montgomerie
On a completely unrelated subject, everyone in the universe should go buy Ray La Montagne's new album. Trust me. He only looks scary.
