Pea Pod Baby sweater

I picked up the yarn for this project at Yellow Dog in Eau Claire, WI on the 15th. I worked hard all week and finished everything on Friday. Just in time for the baby shower the following day.

I think the finished sweater and hat are pretty cute, but following the pattern sucked! It was poorly written and very confusing. For such an easy project I struggled an inordinate amount. Oh well, it's done and it is actually quite cute.

I used Cascade 220 Heather in a deep purple. The buttons I found at Jo Anne Etc. I picked up 4 skeins, but I really only needed 3 to make a 12 month size sweater and hat.

I think the outfit was well received, and just in time too. ;^)

The fact that the sweater and hat were suddenly green when they were totally deep purple on Thursday was totally blowing my mind. Then I realized that I am an idiot.

I think the sweater is adorable and after 5 hours in the house I'm still not in labor so the 'curse' is not 100% anymore.

wow! So cute!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that had issues with this pattern. I had to give up. It just drove me nuts.
