A Sweet Obsession

Row upon row of garter stitch rythmically taking shape. I've been hooked by the wonder that is a Hanne Falkenberg design.


The back is completed and Saturday night I started the right sleeve. I'm not quite sure that I fully understand the mechanics of assembly once the sleeve is done, but with a little patience and perserverance it will all come together.

A big thanks to Vera for the info on knitting shops in the Myrtle Beach area even though I was unable to make it to either one of them. By the time we finished shopping it was time to head back and get ready for the banquet and dance. I'll have to make that my number one priority the next time I'm in the area.


Specs:

Pattern: Velvet-Edged Jacket
Source: Special Knits by Debbie Bliss
Yarn: baby cashmerino Baby Blue
Started: August 12, 2007
Finished: September 8, 2007

Modifications: I opted not to add the velvet piping since this is a care intensive baby garment requiring either hand washing or dry cleaning. Little Eric now weighs over 8 lbs and is thriving and growing by leaps and bounds. The gift was delivered at the baby shower was on October 8th.

Very interesting looking pattern. Can't wait to see how it ends up. Cute baby sweater. It looks so soft.
