baby boy sweater #1: petite facile pullover

The Petite Facile pullover is done! I finally finished seaming and sewing on the button last night ... it could have been finished days ago, but I always seem to procrastinate when it comes to finishing. And the sad part is there was hardly anything to finish! Just side seams and arm seams. This was a really fun, fast pattern. I'd make another one in a heartbeat! Course, I am a sucker for a good garter-stitch yoke ...

This is somewhat embarrassing to admit, but this is the first pattern I've ever knit out of Interweave Knits. And that's after subscribing to the magazine for, oh ... five years. Oops. What can I say? I've queued a TON of patterns, but never seem to actually knit any of them ... until now!

  3. I love the colour (and that button is perfect). I'm a bit fan of the garter stitch yoke myself!

  4. Cute sweater. I too, procrastinated over finished a baby vest that only needed the ends woven in and the buttons applied. I think it took me longer to get up the gumption to finish it than it did to knit it! Hm, I don't want to think about how many things I haven't knit from Interweave after all those years of subscribing. I did do Swallowtail, but can't think of anything else off the top of my head!

  5. That looks wonderful!
    And now that you mention it... I have an entire crate full of magazines and I don't think I've ever made ANY of the projects. Ever.

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't end up knitting much out of their magazine subscriptions! :)

  7. Wow, that's a cute sweater! I guess I'm also a sucker for garter stitch too! I haven't subscribed to any knit magazines yet for exactly those reasons; I'm not sure how many of the patterns I'd actually knit.

  8. Gorgeous yarn! And darling sweater. The button detail is perfect—simple but big: lets the yarn do the talking.
