baby cable wrap

I thought I was going to be pressed for time with this project, as the recipient turns one year old this week, but knitting this little sweater actually went pretty quickly! Even picking up stitches and knitting the borders and ties was fairly painless. Of course, I procrastinated on seaming it up. And of course, it took no time at all...after I finally made myself sit down and do it. The pattern is from Baby Knits by Lois Daykin and I used 6 balls of Filatura Di Crosa Zara on size 3 and 6 needles for the 18-24 month size. I was so happy to find this pattern and I really love how it turned out. I wouldn't be surprised if I knit this sweater again whenever another one-year-old baby girl crosses my path. However, this is the first baby pattern book I have actually purchased and it really is chock-full of cute stuff, so I might have to try some of the other patterns, first.

(There are a couple more photos on Flickr, which is no longer displaying en Espanol, by the way.)


I've already got new projects on the needles...somehow a hat got started the other night while I was procrastinating on seaming the baby sweater...and there may also be some mittens happening...and a box of Silky Wool just might have arrived on my doorstep this week, too. :)

Is it just me, or would an adult version be rockin' too! I'm not a matchy match type of gal, but if I had a daughter, I'd make one for me, too. Great job!
