The only yarn I don’t have listed is the blue I used on the arm cuffs and hem. It’s some leftover Tosh Sock in the color Baltic. I thought I was going to run out of the yellow yarn, so I elected to throw in a third color out of some sock leftovers. gathering stripes finished-2She protested a little to getting the sweater on, but then seemed not to care and seemed comfortable for the next few hours. Timing is important when it comes to these kiddo photos. It was chilly enough to take pictures today. We had something fun to do (the library). She was occupied and didn’t notice I was taking pictures (not asking to hold the camera). gathering stripes finished-5I loved making this sweater and I’m very pleased with the result.
