Purple Princess Sweater

Hello All-

Well, I had a few spare minutes today, so I took some photos of my latest finished object.  A friend of mine is having a baby girl soon, so I made a sweater to send to her in PA.  I've named this one "Purple Princess".  My friend Susan already has two boys, so I'm sure that this little lady will be treated like a princess!!! 

The pattern is Seamless Kimono Sweater, and I used Patons Decor.  I bought the yarn a while back and hadn't found the right pattern for it...until now!!  Because I used a much thicker yarn, the sizing ended up being closer to a 12 month.  Personally, I'm fine with that, since you always want sweaters to be big, and everyone bombards Moms with small baby stuff...usually around 12 months the gifted clothing runs out, and you're on your own.  I still have to get some ribbon for the eyelets...I decided to skip the I-cord tie.  I also left off the flower detailing...I thought it would make it too bulky, and honestly, I am running out of time to get this mailed before we head off for Hannah's surgery. 

Here are some full shots of the front and back...

I loved this pattern.  The crossover front, the seamless design...it doesn't get any better than this!!!  I was so excited when I saw that I didn't even have to sew up the tiny holes that usually appear under the arms!!!  I look forward to making this sweater again, and I hope that Susan, Roger, and the new Little Lady who is going to bless their lives likes it too!!

I also took some photos today of Hannah's finished Family Book...I'll do another post for that though.
