Baby sweater!!

Here is the pic of the Baby sweater I completed yest.
Its cald "Ombre waves" . U can find the pattern in Crochet Magazine , Oct 2005,Vol 23.
The texture of the sweatr luks really beautiful , mayb coz of the wavy pattern. Its worked simply on alternating sc and dc.

It wud fit a baby of 9-12 months..... i used a G hook and Lion Brand Baby soft yarn.
I am really happy with the ribbing at the edges coz it tuk me sm time to grasp it bt then it came out quite well...n now since i hv mastered it ...i can use it for any garment.

It wudnt take two whole weeks to complete the sweater i am sure...Its just tat I gt occupied wit Jovia's dress for sm time, tat i lost a bit of my intreat in tis one :)

One shud complete this in not more than 1 week i guess...provided u don't cook, watch television or go out , AND waste time oly for eating and sleeping ..

dedicating the rest of the time to finishing off Ombre waves...hee hee!

Baby Sweater approaching finishline!

As I mentioned, I gt so excited abt Jovia's dress that i kept the baby sweater away for a while to finish the dress. But now I am back on it and I can again feel that same excitement when u are abt to finish a project. I completed one sleeve but then i found out that for sewing the seams i din hv any thread left as i had used up everythin for Jovia's dress. So now i hv to wait till i get the thread first and then do the ribbing at the edges.....

I just had the sleeves left tobe done so shudn take long .
...mayb in less than a week the cute lill baby sweater shud be done :)
