Secondly - Le p'tit mousse
With perfect buttons!
- Project: Le p'tit mousse -- Le p'tit mousse by Miss Grain de Sel
- Yarn: Make.Do Essence DK Superwash, <1 skein
- Needle: US 8
- Start to Finish: 8/14/13 - 11/12/13
This is another garter stitch baby sweater -- a pullover this time -- knit all in one piece and requiring only to be finished with one long side/sleeve seam on each side and, of course, buttons! In this case, the buttons are purely decorative.
Naturally, that clever little pocket drew me in, but so, too, the flippy little sleeve detail. The pocket could easily be done in another color -- complementary, contrasting, the possibilites are endless.
This was also a very quick knit, the long pause between start & finish mainly due to procrastination about seaming up and, then, the buttons.
Yes, more to come!
Love them both! Garter is my favorite stitch, too. Especially for squooshy baby sweaters. :)

The absolute best part of knitting baby sweaters is picking out the buttons!

Love it! I love garter stitch; it does add that oomphiness that is so comfortable. Again, LOVE this colour! Nice work Grandma!!
