More Baby Knits

I finished a baby sweater to ship off with Elijah. This is a great way to use up some sock yarn on something besides socks.

Country Kiddie- Done

Pattern: Country Kiddie by Pixie Purls
Yarn: Crystal Palace Panda Cotton in Strawberries and Lime- received from Valerie of Shoeless after a blog contest. ETA: Sorry! I cited the wrong Val!
Needles: Addi turbos size 3, 12" circular
Date Started: 4/11/08
Date Finished: 4/14/08
Mods: None- except my gauge is a little tighter than the pattern. (shocker!) So my sweater knit in the 6 months size will probably fit her this summer when it's plenty warm in Texas!

I also heard today that I got 2nd in the sock stash contest over on Yarn4Socks!!! (At least my stash isn't the biggest!)

I don't remember sending you this yarn... Maybe you have me confused with someone else? You did win the 2nd place in the contest though, that's true! : )

Very sweet sweater! I love the colors!
I didn't know there was a sock yarn stash contest - I might have won....it's embarrassing. I need to declare a no-more-buying period, but with Maryland Sheep and Wool in 2 weeks, it's kinda hard....so maybe after that????

So very cute! A truly great use for that yarn. :)

P.S. I canNOT believe your sock yarn stash. That's amazing.

P.P.S. Since I'm rolling all my comments into one: I'm too late to wish you well on your exam, but I hope you did well. Your salad is making me hungry. Hmmm, I think I have some goat cheese in my fridge...
