February Baby Sweater

Well, I finally finished it! Actually, it is kind of a funny story. It had been sitting up in my yarn room for just about a year. I kept knitting other things thinking that I wasn't in the mood to pick up in the middle of a pattern, trying to figure out where I was. The other night I kept to my resolution of finishing the things that I was in the middle of working on and pulled out the sweater. Well, it was finished. I must have forgotten that all I needed to do was add the buttons. I still need to add those buttons, but I took pictures of the rest of the sweater. It turned out beautifully, I think. The only problem is that now, the sweater is too small for C.
I just love the color and the feel. I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a deep burgundy/red color. It was a wicked easy pattern to knit and interesting too. B had a great idea... to give it to his brand new second cousin in England. She will appreciate it!
I often find that that is my struggle with spending so much time on a project. I find that there are few people that appreciate the work as much as you.
Now, on to finishing more old projects. Next up is Apricot Jacket. I am so close...just one more sleeve and then seaming together and buttons....
