maeve's sweater

I knit this sweater for my friend's baby, Maeve, who turned one last weekend. It's from the Nashua Handknits book, Sprout: Designs for Baby, but I used Valley Yarns Northfield in Chestnut. The yarn is 70% merino, 20% baby alpaca, and 10% silk and seemed to work well for the pattern. I really hate seaming sweaters (I know I've mentioned this before), and this sweater had a fair amount of seaming, but I think it turned out great! Maeve is a very small one-year-old, and I made the 18-24 month size, so unfortunately it may be a little while before I get to see her in it.
