Finished Object

Lil'onE is still a work in progress, but her Offset Wraplan is finished.There are more details in my Ravelry projects page. The yarn is worsted weight Bamboo by Farmhouse Yarns, if I remember correctly. It is really nice to knit with, a little heavy though. I think that as time goes on I am becoming more and more the wool snob. I don't mean to be. I just am.
Either way, the yarn and accessories were a gift from my fabulous friend Mrs.H on the day that Lil'onE was born. I started the sweater in November and thought (rightly) that I better hurry up and finish knitting the size 9-12month sweater before it didn't fit! It is done. It fits. And I love it. My only gripe with the pattern is that it requires 8 buttons (the picture doesn't do them justice, they are super sparkly) and the sweater needs to be worn buttoned, otherwise it flops open weirdly. But that isn't the pattern as much as me not wanting to fiddle with 8 buttons on a wiggle-worm. l.a.z.y.
Gosh, she is cute.
Now I need to finish INBA's sweater. I may run out of UFOs! I wish!

Oh, she's darling. What a smile! The sweater looks perfect on her, too. Nice work - you'll have to get a close up of those fancy buttons. So girly!!!!! PINK PINK PINK!

She's so sparkly! We need to work on some sparkly hair accessories, I think.
