This is the last of my recently-knit sweaters. I designed this one also, using Ann Budd's "The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns," Barbara G. Walker's "A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns," and Nancie M. Wiseman's "The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques." It is for DGD Rachel, age 2. The yarn is Lion Wool-Ease. The buttons are Peter Rabbit.

BEAUTIFUL!!! :woohoo:

I'm over the edge when it come to finishing work. I'll have to see if my library can get Nancie M. Wiseman's "The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques" so I can see if there's something new for me to try.

Thanks. My local Joanns recently moved their buttons to near the back of the store, and they now have MANY more than before.

Thanks. This DGD lives in Colorado, so she can use a warm sweater. We will be going out there next week for a two week visit, so I will get a picture of her in the new sweater.

Thanks. I like to do cable patterns, and the small sweaters are great for trying out new designs.
