Yes, it was impossible to resist. Here is the completed sweater, finished just in time –the shower is tomorrow! The pattern is Sweater, from Infant Gift Set, more details here. Aren’t those wee cables just the cutest thing? They look like piped buttercream frosting, positively edible.
I did end up buying the full three balls of yarn specified to make the sweater — I thought there’d be enough left over from the hat to get by with two, but no. So there’s some left over still. Maybe a washcloth, for me!
I love it when the forget-me-nots are in bloom. Some folks think of them as pesky weeds, but their perfect tiny flowers and magnificent sky blue color make up for the seeds that stick to my pants in the summer.
