FO: Baby Belle

Baby Belle

A few days after my last post, I finished spinning the yarn for the body, and cast on. I started it on a friday afternoon, and finished it Saturday evening. Making this the fastest freaking baby sweater knit ever. I think it has something to do with my being used to knitting with string on toothpicks (I like fine gauges, you know), and this being knit on US7’s.

Spinners, this is also a great, great, knit for using up those lone 4oz skeins of precious handspun in the stash.

Ravel the details here!

    Looks wonderful!

    When I first learned to knit, I couldn’t imagine working with anything below a US 7 and now that I have more experience and enjoy doing finer gauge work I have trouble with larger sizes (now knitting with a US 10 feels as ungainly as my beginning attempts).
