Notes

This is my May=Red project for Project Spectrum. The yarn is Knit Picks Bare, which I tied and dyed Fire Red, then tied again and dyed in a combination of Pumpkin Orange & Burgundy.

Fun pattern so far (which I’m knitting on straight needles, by the way).

6/1 -- All finished except for the buttons and a light blocking. Need to get buttons. The little sweater got a “squee” from my daughter, so I think it’s good. Would be adorable holiday sweater for a little girl baby. Need to get (my hands on) a little girl baby. ; )

6/2 -- Bought buttons on my way home from work tonight and sewed on all 7! I didn’t think I would. Threw it in for a soak and it’s drying on the blocking board! Very happy with this cute little sweater. I have enough leftover yarn for a hat or maybe some booties to match!
