I finally started this in September ’09. It is about two inches wider than in the photo now. My plan is to finish it by Solstice and give to my mother. When I showed her what I had so far she really liked it so I think she’ll be pleasantly surprised that it is intended for her.
This sweater is coming out great! I hope I get to see the baby that wears this one. Knitting with Bernat Cottontots is fun. Crocheting with it is horrible. When I knit with this yarn my hands are reveling in the squishyness. When I crochet with it my hands start hurting after about ten single crochet.
There were a lot of ends to weave in but I like this effect. Maybe next time I’ll make the stripes two rows thick.
