wheat kings and pretty things

Actually, more like wee things. Or, just one wee thing. A sweater, specifically:

This would be a Jane Doe Sweater in good ol' LB Wool-Ease. The color is something like Rose Heather...definitely some stashbusting going on around here lately. Mods to the pattern were to use just size 9s instead of switching between 8s and 10s, and I reworked the lace pattern in the back to something I found more manageable than what the directions called for. This would look really cute with a little ribbon woven through it, I think.

I don't know any babies, nor anyone who's going to have one anytime soon, so I knit this sweater mainly as practice. I've never knit an adult-sized one, and I figured a baby sweater would give me a better understanding of raglans and buttons bands and various other sweater logistics.

Final thoughts: a fun, quick project that may have induced ovulation with its cuteness. I have tons of yarn that would be fun to make into lots of adorable sweaters for the children's hospital or other charities.

Some sidebar-cleaning going on, in honor of spring. Some new blogs have been linked, including that of my cousin Kim, who has made her first foray into the blog world by following in the footsteps of those who have gone before her by posting a picture of her cat. Kim makes fabulous cakes and other wickedly delicious treats, I can't wait for some pictures of them!

...and now I'm hungry!

(Oh, and the title comes from here. Best part about that link? The "related tabs.")

Cute baby sweater, even if you don't know what baby it's going to! That's fine. At least now you can say you've made an entire sweater!

Would you ever consider selling your baby items? I'm doing craft shows now and If you decided you wanted to sell anything just let me know! I have 1 on 4/1, 4/8, and 5/13. Just email me if you have anything you want to sell!

Oh my goodness- I wish I had the problem of no babies to knit for. Right now there is an over abundence of pregnancies in my area-- I am maxed out at 8 right now!

I can't knit that fast!
