I thought I had this post all set to go yesterday . . . and…
Hannah’s February Lady Sweater is finished and she’s thrilled – and so am I. It was a fun and fast knit with absolutely great results. See?
Doesn’t she look so cute? The green is a great color on her and really different from any of her other sweaters. The yarn is Dream in Color Classy purchased from Sonny & Shear. Not only do they ship really quickly but they ship for free if your order is over $50.
Of course we had to have the obligatory tree hugging shot. Along with another 85 pictures of her kicking up her heels and grinning and flapping her arms and being a genuine goof ball. She cracks me up, I tell you.
The sweater, if you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, is knit from the top down in garter stitch. I knit Hannah the XXS and followed the directions pretty closely and the fit is just right. The only modification I made was to decrease one lace repeat on the sleeves so they wouldn’t be so full at the shoulder.
We found these buttons at Saftler’s and they are such a perfect match. They have a little bit of sparkle and are just the right shade of green. Oh, and that was another modification I made – only 2 button holes so they would be in the garter stitch yoke portion of the sweater only.
She loves it. I love it. It’s a hit!
