Playful Stripes

A wonderful woman that works at the swim school my kids go to (a big plug for Aquaculture - we love it!) asked me if I would make a sweater for one of her new granddaughters. I was so excited when she picked this pattern!

I loved the pattern, though it didn't go as fast as I had hoped, though I think it was because of all the different colors - I'm not used to carrying 4 balls of yarn in a single project. But it was a good experience, especially since I'd like to try my hand at fair isle knitting (someday).

The yarn (Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino) was wonderful to work with, and the coconut shell buttons are so cute. I love how they match pretty much everything.

I think making a second one should be an easier process, now that I'm familiar with it all. The best part is, the intended recipient (well, her mom and grandma, anyway) are happy, which is the most important part.
