And here's the first
OK, just rounding out

I'm really not intending

I'm really not intending to overload readers with pictures of my adorable child, but at the time I chose to photograph her sweater on the model rather than on the hanger. This is the hooded sweater from the first Knit It!, designed by Bonnie Evans, knit in the Lion Brand Microspun the pattern specified, and even the same color, just because it was the one that most appealed to me. I've subsequently corresponded with the designer, who informed me of the erratum: the sweater is to be knit with a double strand. I didn't do that, and did wonder why I had a whole skein left. I had spotted another error, I thought, but didn't try to confirm it with her. My first go at grafting the shoulder seams was far from perfect -- somehow I must've done the opposite of kitchener, because it looks like a purl ridge rather than invisible stst. I decided to consider it a design element, and had better luck with the hood (I got my friend Frances to help!). I purchased the buttons at my LYS, The Knitting Basket.
