Happy Spring! I'm ignoring the snow that is still outside from yesterday's storm and instead focusing on the brilliant sunshine that is streaming through my windows! Oh and the yellow of Ree's Easter Sweater!
I finished it over the weekend and I am so pleased (for the most part) with how it came out. Saturday morning I sat down and told Ree that I wasn't getting up until it was finished. She then proceeded to dance around me waiting. She picked out a butterfly button to use instead of the ties that the pattern calls for. As soon as the last end was woven in she put it on and declared it "absolutely beautiful." I wanted to get some pictures of her in it but she didn't want any of that.
I really liked the pattern. Very easy to follow and it's so pretty with the lace detail. I didn't care for the two ties to hold it together that it called for, so instead I knit a short i-chord and made a button loop. The only thing I would change would be the yarn. It's Bernat baby & I think for now on I will stick with making just baby things with it. It makes the sweater very heavy & doesn't hold shape that great for a moving 3 year old. But she loves, it looks great on her, and I really do think she'll need a sweater this year for Easter! March is turning out a lot colder then I had been hoping for!
