I'm a dork for being as excited as I am about this!! here is is on my lovely little Miss V:



The pattern is here: http://www.theknittinggarden.com/gallery/aug-free-4.htm

I used Patons Fresco, I think three balls on #11 needles.
 Yayayayayay! I even learned mattress stitch, which seems like freaking magic, if you ask me!

Cool! What yarn are you using? I'm thinking of doing a couple more, it knits up so quickly.

That IS adorable.  I'm just learning, nearly finished with my first knitting project, and sort of already started on a second one that I couldn't resist.  (Do other people do that?  Have more than one project going at once?)  This one is suitable for a real beginner?  Miss V is adorable!  Can't wait till my daughter is a little older so she can start really helping with her own choice of clothing and such.  She's almost 18 months, but I still feel a bit like I'm dressing a doll, buying her clothes just because I think they're cute...

<--Shameless plug-->  Say, you should join the Children's Swap!  We need at least one more participant, and you can make anything you want.  Little Miss V would get a crafty gift out of the deal, and you'd have a really good reason to knit up another one of these sweaters!

Lothruin, i always have more than one project on the go.
I just have so many things i want to make i feel i have to have more than one at a time, and that way if i get pissed off with one i can put it down and go to another.

strangelittlemama, i am just using a acyrlic that i had in my stash, it has knitted up rather well although i know the hang won't be the same as the cotton blend. I only started it yesterday and so far i have a back and sleeve. ( i never do things in order) I'm a bit worried though that it may be a little small for my daughter. But then if it is i will pass it onto my friend who just had a girl a couple of weeks ago. She can  put it away for when it fits ( i hope it does fit my girl though)

Mattress stitch is not so scary, after all! There's a great, very helpful article on knitty this issue: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/mattress.html

And, sbub, the ribbn I used was acrylic, too.
