On and Off the needles!

I promised to show you what's on the needles...well...this one has been on and is now already off the needles:

Henry's Sweater for Roman.

Roman new sweater

He's smiling! He loves it!

romans henry II

Started: October 21, 2010
Finished: November 15, 2010
Pattern: Henry's sweater by Jenna Swanson. It's a free pattern!
Yarn: Spud and Chloe Sweater. You need more than one skein for the main colour in the 18 month size with very little for contrasting colour stripes. If you were making it in a solid colour, two skeins are plenty. This fantastic yarn is now available at Shall We Knit...and this sweater will be there to fondle for a short while;)
Adjustments: None, I made the 18 month size which he will be wearing shortly. Not that the sizing is off...I just have a big baby! He's two days shy of three months...

Roman new sweater III

You can see it is a little long in the body and the arms. I was thinking he would wear it in the spring...but it'll be more like Christmas when he'll be sporting this fine sweater!

I love this yarn! I am hoping to find the time to write up more of a review...but you just need to know that it knits up nicely with beautiful stitch definition. I love the wool cotton blend...warm and breathable. It washes perfectly...IN THE WASHING MACHINE! You can put it in the dryer and take it out damp to reshape. No gauge problems at all. The colour choices are really lovely. I will definitely be using this yarn again...I am thinking of a hat in the cream. He hates hats, but wouldn't a earflap hat with cables look so perfect!?! Or what about a newsboy cap?!?

Oh he is absolutely adorable and I think he loves his mum so much judging by that gorgeous smile. Love the sweater and I think an earflap hat would look great with it too. The yarn sounds really nice to knit with.
