Merino Baby Sweater

This quick project is now a model garment for the local yarn store. I had asked the owner if she needed anything knitted up and she reached for a colorful skein that wasn't selling well. "Maybe if people see how it looks as a pair of socks," she said. Washable? Yes. Baby sweater? Sure. A pattern you would like to sell as well? This would work.

I like it. Lovely, soft, buttery yarn. Big needles. It was a pleasure to make. It can hang in the shop for awhile, sell some products and then make its way to a baby.
