Katie’s sweater is finished! You might remember the one I made her last year. I just realized that I finished that one almost exactly a year ago… totally unplanned. Anyway, that sweater was worn and loved (almost to death) and now it is too small. Hopefully this one will be loved just as much. (And it’s knit seamlessly from the top down, so I can lengthen it if need be.) Sorry for the “blah” photo. I would get her to model it but since it’s a Christmas present that’ll have to wait.
The pattern is “Children’s Neck Down Pullover #9730” from Knitting Pure and Simple. The yarn is Plymouth Encore Colorspun (worsted weight). I really enjoyed using this yarn. For a wool/acrylic blend, it is remarkably un-scratchy and soft. The colors are really pretty, too. And, of course, it is machine washable. (very necessary for Katie)
