New Sweater for Isabel






This was supposed to be a February Baby Sweater, from the old Knitter's Almanac. However, I forgot to bring the book with me while I was working on it and improvised the lace. (I've knit gull wing lace so many times, I was sure I had it memorized.) I guess I was off by one stitch on each repeat and ended up with this lace pattern.

It doesn't matter. She loves the sweater! Now I just need some buttons.



The yarn is Vintage Wool from Berocco. It washes well, but I thought it was slippery and splitty. The metal needles I was using weren't working for me, so I switched to the acrylic needles from www.knitpicks.com and I had a much easier time.
