In a swap on Ravelry, I was roped into knitting a baby sweater (not that it took much arm twisting. Everyone knows me enough to guess that I jumped at the chance!). I am very pleased with the results.
I have knit this pattern several times now, in different sizes and in different gauges. I even used it as a base for the rainbow gown that I made for The Blessing. It is an excellent pattern, well written, logical, and worth every penny.
I was also very happy with the way that I packaged it up to send it off. I sent the yarn tag so the recipient would know how to care for the sweater and I wrapped enough extra yarn around it for future repairs if needed. Then I sewed an extra button on the tag, just in case. It looked really great – a package I would love to receive myself.
Knitting for babies is so fun – even babies I don’t know.
