Pattern: February Baby Sweater from knitter's almanac (sort of)
Yarn: alchemy fibre arts superwash merino handspun
Needles: #10 knitpicks harmonies
Started: August 25, Finished: August 26
I'm pretty sure that the February Baby Sweater is a knitting rite of passage. this is my first one, but it probably won't be the last. i used my chunky chain-plied handspun. it was a lot thicker than the pattern dictated so i adjusted the numbers for my gauge and eliminated the lace since the yarn is pretty loud by itself. i also knit the sleeves in the round. to be honest i forgot to work buttonholes so i added embroidery floss loop buttonholes afterwards using this tutorial. i liked the technique a lot and will probably use it again.
unfortunately even after months in storage, the scented yarn still aggravated my allergies pretty bad so i don't think i'll be ordering from alchemy fibre arts again. the yarn itself is lovely though.
the superwash merino i bought recently will be a baby surprise jacket. slowly working my way through the EZ canon, one sweater at a time.
