A Little Sweater

It's finished (almost)! If you look carefully you'll see that the sleeve seams aren't sewn yet, but otherwise here's the final baby sweater.



The color problem ended up being far more significant than I originally anticipated, so I'm just embracing the two totally different oranges as a design element rather than pretending they may actually be supposed to match. Although the colors are gender neutral, I think the lace makes this sweater to girly for a boy baby, or am I just being silly? I don't know the gender of any of the babies I'm knitting for right now, but statistically one of them is bound to be a girl, right? As usual, I'm sure I wont get around to sewing on the buttons until the intended recipient is in his or her crib.

It's going to be a rough 10 days of work and travel around here. Hopefully I'll have plenty of time for knitting, but I'm not sure I'll be doing much blogging.

I like the various colors too! Sometimes things look better when they're not *so* organized.

I think that the colors work well too. If you hadn't told us those oranges were supposed to match, i would have thought you did it on purpose! I agree that the lace isn't very boy-friendly...

It's so pretty! I like all the colors, it's a gorgeous sweater. And yes, probably best for a girl.

I like calling the differet colors a design element. And I would agree that the lace makes this one trend girly. I hate when I come up against my gender stereotypes like that, but there it is.
