This is the previously mentioned baby sweater. It is made of baby yarn in pale yellow. It was given to me without a label, so I don't know the minute details. I decided to use the yellow because at the time I was uninformed as to whether I was making it for a boy or a girl, and thought yellow would suit either equally.
The pattern I found in an old Needlecraft magazine that I bought from a thrift store (Fall-Winter, 1955-1956). Most of the patterns are to knit, one of those things I've been meaning to learn.
I entered it into the county fair earlier this month. It won Best of Show. Very exciting! And now I have a lovely rosette with which to flaunt my talent at the world. Sadly, the photos showing the hanging-down ribbons didn't turn out.
I think the most difficult part may actually have been sewing the buttons on in a straight line. After a few attempts though, the overall effect is pleasingly linear.
Honestly, I am mainly pleased to have finished on time.
Next on the agenda: Find a nicer font for the blog's header. I'm dissatisfied with the current one. It's too... spidery, perhaps? I can't seem to think of the proper adjective.
