A former co-worker of Smokey's and former renter of our house had a baby over a year ago, and I promised her a sweater. While I knit it almost immediately, it sat… and sat… and sat… waiting for the arm seams to be sewn and a button added at the neck. I finally did that last little bit of finishing a couple weeks ago and mailed the sweater off to little Abby. Luckily for me, she is a tiny little peanut and will have plenty of room to grow into it.

    Adorable! (Both the baby and the sweater)
    I’ve always found ‘almost done’ to be a near fatal trap…

    Oh so cute. And impressed with your weaving in skills. I was hoping it was a self-striping yarn!

    The sweater is great (even if the kitty looks a little unimpressed). Off to think about striped raglan sweaters for adults…!

    I love this pattern. It’s the one I usually make (and tweak). The store I work part time at has upsized the pattern to fit up to a 4-6 child (with Bev’s permission). We always have people wanting the sweater for adults, but unfortunately, Bev didn’t have time to design that before she passed away.

    I see she went out and got her hair did before her photo shoot.
    The things you make for people–there is nothing greater. I am so in love with the cowl you made for me, still.
