This is Tiny Tea Leaves, by Melissa Labarre
I've been on a mission to use up my stash - which is a little ridiculous in size. I bought this wool (O-wool Classic in Thistle - I can't recall the color names for the stripes) when I first started knitting, with plans for a sweater for Little Miss A - that was 2 years ago ;) The pattern I'd intended it for is miles too small. I also didn't have quite enough of the pink, so I added in the stripes, just in case.
I love this pattern. It's very very easy, but still beautiful. The only part I don't care for is picking up stitches for the button panel. I like it when the panel is just knit at the end of the row as you go, but that's ok - I still love it ;)
Mainly tho this pattern is just interesting enough that I didn't get too bored, but not so complicated that I can't knit and chat, or knit and watch a movie ;) That's my favorite kind of knitting. Some day when my kids are grown, I'll knit the more complicated stuff for my grandchildren ;)
The painted wooden buttons are from Peace Fleece - another thing from my stash. These buttons are so beautiful - hand painted from Russia. I had to take the sweater off my lovely model to get a shot from the front - she got tired of posing and thought it much more fun to run away ;)
There's still some wool left in all the colors.......I'm thinking a hat?
