The first of a few -- Stitch!

To get the party started, I sewed the seams of Le p'tit mousse the other night and then couldn't find the buttons I'd bought for it a few months ago.

So, I stopped at my LYS yesterday on the way home and, of course, found buttons I liked even better! Phyllis at Iris Fine Yarns has a wonderful collection of buttons!

But we're actually not going to talk about that today. Today we're going to talk about this:

One-Stitch Baby Sweater

I put the start date on Rav as November 1, 2010, only because there's not an option for "a million years ago." I have no idea when I started this, but it's been finished for almost as long, with coil-less pins marking five spots and awaiting only buttons all this time.

Alison picked the buttons herself last week at Soutache, and they are perfect -- the light blue buttons with the pale yellow yarn gives a nice vintage-y feel.

I'm unsure of the size -- it will probably fit 9m to a year or so, depending on the baby.

Aptly named, it's knit entirely in garter stitch (my favorite stitch) and all in one piece, finished with one long side/sleeve seam on each side and, of course, buttons! Cotton Ease means easy care -- one of the best and most affordable there is. This would be perfect in all seasons.

Voila! Ooooh, I can't wait for a squishy baby!!

There's more to come... stay tuned!

You have the best eye for detail and color! This sweater is proof you've been knitting baby stuff for forever, at least as long as I've known you!
I've been voting twice a day...home and work. Is that cheating? :)

That is a beautiful sweater - the color is lovely and the buttons give it a great pop of color!

Beautiful sweater Vicki and the colour is gorgeous. Congratulations to your daughter and son in law on the impending arrival and congratulations on your new role as Grandma! This is going to be one lucky baby...
