I haven't posted in knitting in, well, a very long time, so consider this a first post! 

This sweater is nearly complete, only missing the toggles and buttons!  It's knit in a size 12months.



Thanks for looking!  (This is my first complete sweater, so I'm very proud!

Very cute! Can't wait to see it with the buttons, and maybe even an action shot?

What kind of yarn is it, and what pattern did you follow?

I used Luxury DK Cashmere by Fantasy Yarns in Periwinkle.  The pattern was from an issue of Family Circle Easy Knitting.  The cover is gone from the magazine (I've had it forever) so I'm guessing it's Fall 2004.  The pattern is call "Cables and Bobbles."  This post from my blog has pictures of the yarn I used, and of the photo example of the project:  http://peachtreeknitting.typepad.com/peachtree_knitter/2007/06/hmmph.html

Oh, and I forgot to mention:  there won't be any "action shots" for a while.  This sweater is for the baby in my belly!  I made it a size 12 months because I wasn't sure if she'd be in a size 6 months this winter.  (She's due Oct 24.)  I'm pretty sure she'll be able to wear it the winter after next!  (They didn't have anything smaller than 6 months.)

I love it! I am going to  have to see if I can get my hands on a copy of the magazine. Anyone seen the pattern available online?
