Hooray, Another Sweater Done!

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post. Sorry to be such an insecure blogger, but reassurance keeps the fingers busy and the needles clicking!

So, this evening, while watching Dancing with the Stars, my favorite guilty pleasure, I finished knitting my second Gingerbread Baby Sweater. This one is for my friend Elise's new baby, which isn't due until April something-or-other. I can't wait to surprise her with it this Friday!

Also, I actually figured out how to post a two-page pattern to blogger! It's a long, involved process which I will not bore you with. Changing a document from .doc to .jpg is mentally painful. Suffice it to say, figuring this out took me the better part of two hours and lots of tech advice from my brother, Josh (thanks, bro!).

So, without further ado, I present to you the Gingerbread Baby Sweater pattern. I'm going to keep working on it, so that I can change the schematics to fit larger sizes, but for now, I'm very happy with the result.

I realize that the picture is small. It's only posted here for affect; if you actually want to print it out, click on the link in my sidebar under "My Patterns".

The sweater looks great. I think it will be a while and a few more projects until I am brave enough to try to knit one.

The sweater is absolutely gorgeous! I am in total awe that you made up the pattern yourself! It's such a nice gift too.

The sweater is adorable. My computer is being onery today and won't let me get at the pattern, but I'm hoping it'll fit Leif.
