Ta da, I present to you my first finished item of the year!
This is a Baby Sweater on Two Needles (aka February Baby Sweater) by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I chose to knit mine in a sock-weight yarn from The Knitting Goddess called Same Difference - two skeins of opposite colourways. I cast on 71 stitches and worked the pattern almost as written from there - apart from I kept the arm stitches on waste yarn and knit them in the round after the body was finished. I have a tiny bit of the body yarn left and at least half of the yoke yarn left over. It is chest size of about 19" - so will hopefully fit from about 4-6 months.
This is for a baby born just before Christmas who lives in Australia - knitting the garment in sock weight means it is a fairly light and lacy, but hopefully should be a good cover up layer during Autumn. Fingers crossed it arrives across the other side of the world safely.
