Pattern: February Sweater (Sweater on Two Needles), by Elizabeth Zimmermann from The Knitter's Almanac
Yarn: Brooks Farm Riata, I bought this a few years ago at The Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck
Needles: Size 7 circular
Size: I would say a 6 month old baby, but babies come in different sizes
Notes: This time I skipped making buttons holes and was able to push the rather large button through the yarn. I was worried this would work, but I think the sweater is knit loosely enough that it worked. Also, my preference with this sweater has become keeping the buttons holes on the yoke part of the sweater. I just love this pattern!
My thoughts of making this sweater bigger were WAY off. It fits Phoebe, but is probably best suited for a younger baby that can grow into it. I just love the color and the yarn, so I'll be sad to see it go, but I do have more of the yarn for another sweater.
I got off-track...my point in bringing the book up is that last month after having dinner in the Meat Packing District, we wandered up to the High Line. Which, I'm assuming this book is loosely based on, maybe I'm wrong.
The High Line, if you're not familiar with it, is an old rail track that was converted to a park. It's a 'lifted' train track 30 feet above the ground. It's really interesting and has a great view of the Hudson and Jersey City, looking West.
