Baby EZ

Pattern: February Baby Sweater on Two Needles by Elizabeth Zimmerman (from the book "Knitters Almanac")
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease- Cotton/Acrylic 10 ply (2 balls 'Berry', 1 ball 'Gray')
Needles: 4mm (US 6)

I made this for the Destiknit Spring Baby KAL/CAL. Each of the garments made for the KAL/CAL are to be donated to a charity of your choice...I am thinking of giving it to a local womens refuge.

I wasn't sure which buttons to use until I went searching through my button stash and found exactly the right number of these 'mother of pearl' buttons....I think it was meant to be.

This was such a quick knit, the only thing I would do differently next time is to knit the sleeves in the round. There was a lot of yarn left over so I am also knitting a pair of Saartje's Booties (by Saartje de Bruijn) to go with the sweater.

Adorable! That is my next baby project as well. I will take your advice and knit the sleeves in the round.
