Little Lilly's Sweater pt 2
Anyway back to the construction of the sweater! It is so easy to follow the pattern I cannot say enough good things about it. The only time I did not seem super pumped to keep going was before you put the sleeve stitches on holders. I found myself keep saying and see this will be the side and this will be the sleeves to puzzled looks from anyone I could find to show. My favorite rows were the ones right after slipping the sleeves on to holders and you go from something that just looks a little blah to instant sweater!!
I picked out some fun purple elephant buttons that I scored from Jo-Ann's for less than 2 bucks. (Hint: Check the front of the store for a stand with their weekly fliers...they have COUPONS!)
I love this sweater and even though it came out closer to the size of 6 mths vs the 0-3 mths I was trying for I already have plans to kint up at least three more for gifts.
Great grab and go project that will get oohs and awes from anyone your knitting near!
