I just finished it this afternoon, and it is a PERFECT fit!!!
Hannah was so excited to try it on! Now all I need to do is find the perfect buttons to go on it. I have some plain ones kicking around that would fit, but I know that Hannah would like to pick out some special ones.
I named the sweater Raspberry Tart, since that has quickly become Hannah's favorite character from my old Strawberry Shortcake toys. That, and the colors reminded me of a raspberry patch.
The pattern was super easy...it only took me 6 days to finish, and I wasn't knitting every day on it. I must say that I am a bit sick of stockinette stitch right now!! The yarn pooled just a bit on the sleeves...one had some cream colored pooling, and the other had some raspberry color pooling. Overall it wasn't bad considering the type of yarn.
I am really pleased with the pattern, and the result!!! Now I have to find some coordinating yarn for a hat and mittens. I have enough of this yarn left, but I can't handle anymore stripes!!!
I'm not sure what's next for the needles, so I'll keep you posted.
