I started this back about April 8 or so and then had to stop and knit a shower gift. Then I knit some baby socks and I finally got back to it. I managed to figure out what I had been doing and got it done. :woot:
This is another of my own designs. I did use Sweater Wizard a bit to help with the set in sleeves. Pattern stitches: The border is from Knitting on the Edge and is called Quill Eyelet. The eyelets for the main body of the sweater are from a Harmony Guide; the pattern is called Little Flowers.
I made this in 5 pieces and sewed it together. The sleeves are meant to be just below the elbows or 3/4 or something. I haven't gotten to try it on my DGD yet. I finished the fronts with one row of sc and some chain loops. I used two of the loops for buttonholes.
The yarn is TLC Wiggles. I think the yarn knits up nicely, but I don't know how practical the wiggles are on it. They look like something little fingers would love to try to pull on.
Here is a close up of things.
I got to show it to my daughter the other night but didn't give it to her because I didn't have any pictures yet. My DD liked the way it turned out. I had shown it to her as a UFO and she wasn't sure how she was liking the yarn. But now that it is done she likes it.
