february baby sweater

I knit this sweater for a friend who is having a baby girl in June. I love this pattern - especially the fact that it is knit all in one piece. The pattern is Elizabeth Zimmerman's "February Baby Sweater," which is in A Knitter's Almanac. I used Lily Chin Gramercy, which is superwash merino. The yarn isn't very interesting or nice, and I probably wouldn't choose it again, but I'm so thrilled with how the sweater turned out that, surprisingly, the yarn doesn't bother me very much.

Kenzie wore the sweater today. We just love it, she wears it all the time. It is starting to get a bit short in the arms, but I think I'll just treat it as a 3/4 length sleeve. I can't stand to put it away.
