I fell in love with this book and had to have it, even before I ever got pregnant.  So, I made the wrap sweater in lavender just to make it, it is so cute!  Then I ended up getting pregnant.....with a boy!  So, my lavender sweater is just to look at!  I did make him a sweater from this book though and it turned out really wide and short.  It was my 1st sweater ever so that's OK. 

I'm glad I found this thread.  I'm going to get that book out again and make something else for my handsome little man.

Beautiful mabel dress, btw! I SO want to make that in the largest size so it would fit my bb next spring, but the pattern intimidates me. How was it?

Thanks! I thought the mabel dress was fairly simple - the directions are really clear. I learned to knit in Sept, so I'd been knitting for about 7 mos when I made it. I'm actually making the largest size now as my mother's friend asked that I make it for her granddaughter. I think I'm going to invest in Addi turbo circulars and knit (back&forth) on those - it seems like the straight stitch part would go faster.

That's a good idea. Yeah, 10 inches of straight stockinette on size 2's sounds like it would take me forever - I get bored easily and my mind wanders and I start making mistakes. That and I'm afraid of sleeves. I taught myself to knit in January and so far have only finished scarves, hats, and one bootee, but I'm pretty adventurous (my first finished project was on dpns) so I think I'll try it.

I'm almost done with my wrap top - didn't quite make it last night. I chose lavender too, kelliz! Still need to find some ribbon, and glampyre's one skein wonder is distracting me, but I should finish it today.

Meggy - You should defnitely try this project. That was my first attempt at sleeves and they were so easy. The stockinette does take a while, but it's well worth it as the project was so much fun. I will tell you the trickiest part was the picot edging detail on the neck, but that was also my first attempt at that and I was so proud when I finished.
