Baby Sweater from a library book
I made This sweater from a pattern in the Vibeke Lind Book called Knitting in the Nordic Tradition. The tiny sweater is knit in cotton and has a crochet picot edging. Learning to crochet the picot edging was the hardest part.
Has anyone else knit things from this book?
(You can't really see the detail that well. Call it technical difficulties and maybe I should have tried to take a picture using a camera instead of a flat bed scanner.)

I love it! Definitely heirloom quality. How's this....Heirloom Classics by Selena. Sounds marketable.


I have seen that book in my local library. I may have to check it out.
