Starfish Sweater
This is the first sweater I ever made (I made a couple more since). It is a toddler sweater that I gave to my nephew and his wife as a Christmas gift.

They don't have kids yet and aren't expecting, so it may SEEM like an obnoxious hint from a meddling aunt to get busy, but my nephew is a twin. His twin brother got engaged/married first and had a child first and got the first baby blanket I ever knit. I just wanted them to have a first and am WAY to impatient to put it away until the circumstances fit the gift! :D

I love shamelessly posting pics for compliments! Thanks for all the nice things. The pattern was from a Classic Elite book "Kids Kollection" (goofy name). The one I made is done in Classic Elite Flash (color: Lily Pad) which is 100% mercerized cotton.

I that! Fantastic first sweater!

My son would love that, too. He's got a thing about anything related to the beach. Hmmm ...

A first you say??
My first sweater sure didn't look anything like yours.

It looks like you had lables made with your name. Am I right?
Way da go!
