Hello!  Long-time lurker, first-time poster, tragically inconsistent commenter...

Just knit up [a href="http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTdaisy.html"]Daisy[/a] from a pattern in Knitty's archives using fabulous Pakucho organic cotton.  Sorry that I don't have any model shots; at time of writing, the recipient - (daughter of my boyfriend's ex-girlfriend, good times, good times...) - is only three days old.  Smiley

Very very cute. My mom is having a baby in October, and i might like that for her. Was it hard to do?

I love the way the seed-stitch takes centre-stage, I never thought it could look so pretty!

Nice job Smiley

Thanks, guys.  Smiley  One of my favorite projects, by far.  Wee little baby garments are just so darn cute.

Madeleine09:  It was a *super* easy knit.  Just a lot of stockinette and seed stitch, with a few increase/decreases thrown in.  The only part that I had difficulty with was picking up stitches that I had already bound off (to add the hood); it was my first time doing that, and the end result was a *bit* sloppy.  Otherwise, no problems.  It was finished in slightly over a week.

Oh, I love the natural color, and it makes the buttons pop, too.  A very sophisticated looking sweater, nice job!

not to hijack your thread, but i just finished the snake-charmer version myself:

i used takhi cotton classic for the sweater and acrylic scrap yarn for the snakes.  i don't have any action shots either, as the recipient (my favorite auntie's first baby!) is a couple of thousand miles away.
