Another February baby sweater

I really love the February Baby Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman and I had to make another! What I like is that the chioce of yarn and needle size is entirely up to the knitter and so you never quite know what size the sweater will come out unless you are a real stickler for tension swatches which I am not.

This one was knitted on 4.5mm needles with Debbie Bliss Rialto aran yarn. I used up 4 balls and Ithink this will fit Evie at about a year old. I made the sleeves 3/4 length as this is a bit easier for when babies are crawling around. I love the colour and I am really pleased with the colour match of the buttons I found in Falmouth - especially as I matched the colour by memory!

If anyone would like me to read the instructions to them if you are unable to find a copy of the book, please let me know. I cannot do a photocopy for copyright reasons!

So pretty. Not at all surprised you made more than one. BTW I am glad to hear I am not the only one who does not bother with the tension swatches. I know i should but it just seems like an obstacle to stop me getting on with that exciting new project.

Love your knitting and crochet stuff, I especially like the hexagons you made from 'Beyond the Square' and have sent the link to my daughter. Your cute little Evie has really mischevious smile ....happy days.
