Rainy Day Spring Sweater

Great for baby showers, great for procrastination.

My sister is due with her first bebe very shortly and the shower is this weekend. Wow Maiya. Way to wait until Monday to decide to knit a baby sweater. Found this Mossy kids sweater on Ravelry. Perfect for a boy or girl. Perfect for my Cascade 220 superwash. Perfect for the time crunch.

Knitted up super quick and I love the zig zag. This would be a great project for a beginner- especially since there is no seaming. It's all knit in the round. I made it short sleeves because I wanted a lightweight springtime sweater and also because it looked like my skein wasn't going to have enough for full sleeves.

After I finished knitting it, I dyed it the perfect color of minty green with food coloring. Now to add some buttons and send it off priority...

I'd also like to add that just by showing the photos of the same sweater side by side, you can really see the difference blocking makes. Remember to block your knitting people!
