I finished Evelyn's Special Sweater!! I finished up the sleeves during the Olympics, and then sewed it all together on Monday night. I sewed on the buttons, soaked, and blocked it Tuesday. I really wanted to get this finished before her arrival. Not because I think she's going to fit into it right away, but because its complication level is not at all compatible with taking care of a newborn. I have to admit, I am particularly proud of this finished project.
I really tried to get good pictures (I used the tri-pod even!), but I seem to lack Kev's innate ability to snap an artsy photo. Good thing Evy and I will have him around to document things! Of course, then he won't be in any of the pictures.
I had a sudden inspiration at Jo-Ann's the other day to use pink buttons. I bought these vintage looking buttons, which were only $0.56, and are not at all vintage. But I think they match the vintage look of the sweater. Kev remarked that this sweater looks just like one of my favorite gray cardigans. He's right of course, but I think that's perfect. Not saying we're going to wear matching outfits, but I think it makes sense to dress my baby girl in something I would wear.
