So I recently claimed gatheredthreads for a baby sweater on Ongoing Wish Swap on Craftster.org. She sent me links to a couple sweaters she liked, but I ended up making up my own pattern:

Pattern: My own, which I’m considering writing up if anyone’s interested.
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Tweed, about 2.5 skeins.
Needles: US 7/4.5 mm

So I like how this came out. I ended up knitting too many rows above the sleeves, resulting in a cute little foldover collar. And open cables! Guys, I LOVE open cables. LOVE THEM. It took a bit to figure out how they worked, but once I had it, they turned out fantastically. Love ’em. Not sure how the sweater will fit or how it will look on the kid, but hopefully it fits well enough.

If I do end up writing this up it won’t start testing until my current test is done (the Green Leaves tank), but since it’s a fall/winter garment, the timing will work out well. If you ARE interested in maybe testing this when I’ve written it up, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email. : )

Also, in case you were wondering, I finished the first Lakeside sock! It’s done! I still have to knit the whole other one, but I’m officially half done. *dance*
