bigger boy blue

freddie bean's sweater is finished!

here's my rav linky.  pattern is the maui hooded baby jacket.  6 skeins of knit picks swish worsted in delft heather, knit on size 7 needles.  this sweater is constructed from the top down, and the hood is knit separately then crocheted (slipped stitched) on.  i modified the pattern by knitting 7 ridges instead of 8, and attaching a zipper instead of knitting button holes.  i enjoyed this pattern and think it will become one of my "go-to" toddler sweater patterns.

i ordered 6 skeins of yarn thinking i'd have plenty left over.  i was left with this:

close call.

freddie will not wear the sweater.  he walks over to it then runs away when i ask him to put it on.  figures.

petunia grudgingly put the sweater on for pictures.  then she wouldn't stand still for them:

this is the truer blue of the sweater:

this sweater is now ready for fair exhibition!  wish me luck!
