Baby sweater #1

Cascade by Raya Budrevich




First of two baby sweaters for a friend who's due in December.  This one gave me some trouble at the beginning (entirely my fault - I have to learn to read instructions rather than try to anticipate what will happen next...) but I'm glad I stuck with it.  The Madelinetosh superwash is nice stuff, not luxurious, but soft and good to knit with.  The color struck me as a different sort of shade - something fun rather than the usual pink/yellow/green/blue that is usually used for baby stuff.  Pink buttons, though, had to have those!  Stay tuned for sweater number two...

Super cute. I've never seen a button band like this one. And brava for getting an early start on a DECEMBER baby!

The different from norm colour choice suits the unsual pattern. Well done.
