Baby Blue

My first finished sweater of 2013 is just that - finished.  I call it Baby Blue.  Nothing subtle about me.



Pattern:  From Need A Baby Cardigan?, it is the basic pattern with  the Broken Rib border option.
 
 I know now that a fancy border pattern in the bright, busy yarn was effort wasted because it doesn't show.  Oh well.
Yarn:  Wicked by King Cole.  Wicked as in 'wicked cool', I'm sure.
Needles: 4mm throughout.
Modifications:   None.

I knit the 3 button option and bought the  'purrfect' buttons at Purrsonally Yours yarn store in Meaford.  I was mistakenly searching for red buttons as my eyes had convinced me that the  fuchsia  bits were red.  Shop owner Isabel pulled out these 3 yellow ones and I said "Perfect."  She said "Easy sale."



A quick knit  that hits the spot when we are almost at the third month of the year and I had not finished  one sweater.  Into my very empty box of baby knits, onto my ravelry project's page and my blog list of FOs 2013  it goes.  Feels  good.

Looks terrific Brenda. The buttons really make it pop. Lovely choice of yarn. Congrats on your first 2013 Finished Sweater. I wish I could say the same!
