FO: My First Stranded Knitting Project
This languished in my UFO pile for a ridiculous amount of time, just awaiting seaming, weaving in and buttons. It's my first attempt at stranded colorwork. I chose a simple pattern, and I think it came out fairly nicely. The buttonband is not so hot, but meh--what are you gonna do? I might try to block it more into shape. But then again, I might not.

Thanks Jan! No, it's not for me. It's a toddler sweater. Originally it was for my nephew, but considering I started in a year and a half ago it won't fit him now. Once of my co-workers had a baby recently so I'll probably just give it to her for the baby to grow in to. (It's a 2T, although the baby did weight 9 lb. 7 oz. and she didn't have any painkillers. )

I am so impressed with the wrong side! Your work is so neat. Your co-worker will be so happy to get the sweater.

Marria, it's beautiful. Don't worry about the neck, the stranding looks perfect.
