A friend had a baby boy so I had the perfect excuse to go back to knitting after a THREE-MONTH hiatus! It was a joy. I used Sirdar Snuggly Baby Speckle DK which was nice and soft and cottony but easy on the hands with 40% acrylic. I picked it up at Another Yarn on the North Shore Yarn Crawl and thought it might be TOO babyish but the denim color made it perfect in the end.
I was really pleased with the neck (I had to trust the directions for the cool decreases at the center!) and the texture was just right. The sweater has been posted to baby Francesco in London.
