Today was a beautiful day, cold but clear. We went for our normal walk, and Dick took the camera along because I'd seen some heather blooming and wanted a photo for a new header for the blog. (See above!) At the top of Somerset hill, we had a great view of the snowy Cascades to the north.
After we got home, I wove in the ends on this baby sweater and sewed on the buttons that I found on a shopping expedition earlier today. This was such an interesting pattern to make because you start at the sleeve, make the two halves and then graft the whole thing together. The hood is also grafted with the final result being no seams! The pattern says the size can be varied by varying the yarn weight and needle size.
The back has a repeat of the Gansey design, and the actual grafting of the two pieces occurs along this edge. The pattern is by Cottage Creations and is called Babies & Bears Sweater. Thanks to Janine for helping me to find a source for this pattern which I'd seen on her blog!
One down, two more to go!
