The thing about joining a photo-a-day group is that there are photos taken everyday! Some are better than others, of course.
It's the (free pattern) Hug Me Pullover knit in Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller Washable Ewe instead of the called-for Alpaca Love! The yarns are nearly the same weight and "washable" seemed to go better with "kid sweater." I couldn't stand the loose, "homemade" look at the original gauge, though, so fiddled with numbers and knit it at a much tighter gauge. It looks much better and more "handmade" than "homemade." Also, with the better yardage, I used only one ball of each stripe color and have a nice scrap of each.
The dreaded sewing up and seaming shall soon commence... and wouldn't it be nice if it set me on a little roll with that!
