i'm visiting my sister and family this week. my niece's birthday was earlier this month, but since i knew i was going over there anyway, i decided to just hold on to her presents till i get there. i made her this jacket for the winter. it's a size too big, but she's still growing and they can always cuff the sleeves. it's a really pretty purple i think.
start: july 24th
end: august 1st
pattern: cable and seed stitch pattern from the baby knits book
needles: size 8
yarn: 2 skiens of caron simply soft in iris
mods: i did the whole thing in one piece up to the armholes. then i did a 3 needle bind off with the shoulders. i picked up the sleeve stitches and worked down, having to decrease to the wrists.
