Sweet Little Baby Sweater

Even with no babies in my life in the foreseeable near future, I have a love of knitting wee things- clothing in particular. Such a good way to get a garment out of your system, without commiting to days and months of the same colour and stitch. You know?

I had a hankering to cast on February Lady, but was able to overcome that by knitting the original, baby version.

'What's the original?' You wonder. The Elizabeth Zimmerman 'Best Baby Sweater' that was originally published in Vogue Knitting in the 90's.

It can also be found in Zimmerman's 'Knitter's Almanac'.

Knit back and forth, top down, on two needles with only TWO balls of yarn.

YEOW! Two.
I used Naturally's Classic Prints- a DK weight 100% beautifully soft superwash wool.
(Shade #888)

SO- now that's out of my system, I can get back to my crocheted baby boots.

Crocheted boots would look dumb on me anyway.
