Almost a year ago, I set out to knit my second (sigh!) baby sweater. And this time, I was determined to finish it. Why? Well, because it's for Baby J, of course! My very favorite pseudo-niece!
I started the project with my knitting buddy, CS. She got me started on the pattern, which was not explained well, and then I was off. I thought I would need help picking up stitches and knitting the sleeves but, thanks to YouTube, I did it all myself. That makes me very happy! Knitting is not something that comes naturally to me so when I accomplish a project, especially a complicated one, I'm very pleased.
Here are the sweater details:
Pattern: Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater by Rebecca L. Daniels (free from Knitting Daily, and I got it on Ravelry)
Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK
Needles: US 4
Made for: Baby J
Time to completion: 11.5 months
The Sirdar Bamboo was lovely to work with. The stitch definition is very, very nice so I highly recommend it!
