My girl asked me to knit her a rainbow sweater.
Loving rainbows myself, I was happy to oblige.
The yarn - Noro Silk Garden, in several different colorways, that I moved back and forth from, choosing the color that called to me most :)
The pattern is "Tiny Tea Leaves" by Melissa LaBarre. I love love love this pattern. The yoke is gorgeous, and yet really not hard at all technically. I knit it in a size 6, so she'd have room to grow - which she definitely does. Looking at it, it might have been better to go with the size 4, and lengthen the body and sleeves. My girl is such a slim little gal - it's a bit wide. It's fine tho - she loves it, which is all that matters to me :)
The sun in this photo is making the colors look a little washed out, but I wanted to show the two different sleeves :) My girl picked out the buttons :) The whole time I was knitting it she kept asking me when we could sew the buttons on :) It's hard to tell in the photos, but the stars are sparkly :)
I suppose I should have fiddled with it so it actually laid straight hey?
I don't think I have ever enjoyed knitting a project as much as this one - it was so fun to watch the colors change :) Next I think I may need to knit myself one ;)
