The Baby Surprise Sweater for Scarlett

I just finished this sweater for Scarlett and presented it to her this weekend. I used cotton yarns, Fantasy Naturale and Cotton Ease, starting with a random skein of the Fantasy Naturale and then added white and orange Cotton Ease plus orange buttons. Using size 9 needles resulted in a very stretchy fabric so it should fit her for a long time to come. This is a very fun pattern to make and I've probably made 6 or 8 versions of it in the last couple of years. Hopefully it will be useful for the cool autumn days coming soon.

crafty indeed! so great to see family reunited, lots of babies, marta's parents, toddlers, newborns!
congratulations on a beautiful sweater, as a non-knitter, I am duly impressed!
I am enjoying marta's blog too... you are both inspiring me to get going with my own blog again.
