Was really fun making something so small (took only a couple days for the actual sweater...a bit of time to weave all the ends) and being I don't ever have occasion to work top down, enjoyed the technique for this purpose given my very limited amt of yarn (as I attempted to allocate it for balanced striping).
Thanks, Jan! Two more??? Ouch. I don't have enough acrylic stash to do another little sweater. However, I've generated quite a bit of usable yarn from my recycled thrift store sweaters but plan to make something for myself with that.
loveswildflowers....thanks! Had I the compulsion, and the stash!, I could see myself cranking out a bunch of these. I'm so used to making adult-size sweaters, most requiring seaming, that this was a piece of cake.
