I think I know how to put pictures on now. :woot: Thanks to ArtLady and Jan. :hug:
This little sweater is a 0-3 month size, made from a Drops Design pattern (No. 13-18). I made it with a washable wool rated at 28 stitches= 4 inches. My first washable wool ever!
It is knit in one piece from the bottom, then you knit the sleeves from the cuff up and join it all together for the yoke. The pattern calls for buttonbands worked right on, but I opted for picking up stitches for them instead. The cuffs and collar have a crocheted trim.

Ok. I can see that you've been a busy knitter! Wow! Your projects (including this one) have just been amazing! GREAT job!
07-29-2007, 09:02 PM
That's awesome!! You MUST have used size 0 or 1 needles!!:oo:

Ellen (or Trudy?), I did use size 1 needles for this one. I'm glad I managed to find where I scribbled that. :figureditout:
This Drops pattern also has pants (trousers), booties and a bonnet. I'm thinking of making at least the bonnet, but have gotten off on another project for now. :lol: There is also a blanket that goes with this outfit. It is beautiful, but looks like a lot of work.
Thanks for the compliment.
