Oh my gosh, it's finally DONE!!!!











Here she is, my long in progress Little Tikes pullover sweater (pattern found online, from an old IK). I think it was about the third project I CO, maybe back in Feb, and I just finished it about a week ago. It's sized generously and I knit it to a size 4, expecting it to take a while to complete. So it's still a bit big on Sylvia and the sleeves are a little short on Becca. But it came out the correct size. Anyway, it's sooooo imperfect, but it's my very first sweater. What an amazing feeling, putting a sweater you made by yourself on your own child!

Good Job Amber!! It is beautiful, I love it for the colors and it is a nice casual sporty sorta look.
It does feel good to put a FO on your child...my first was for my third grandchild to wear to my son's wedding two years ago.
Now I'm knitting for the baby they are expecting in December!
