I never would have considered knitting it if it weren't for Felicia's gorgeous progress photographs.
There is no baby in mind for this sweater. I may save it for my someday future child, or give it as a gift if something comes up. I just like the idea of knitting this little sweater as practice in Fair Isle and steeking. It will just be a finished project when done, and not necessarily a garment.
The yarn is Louet Sales Gems Pearl a very soft fingering weight. Cream is the main color, with dark brown and grass green accents. Seaport Yarn didn't have the right shade of grass green, so I substituted Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Loden.
The Louet yarn is very very soft.
I am working at keeping my Fair Isle not too tight..apparently that is tricky.
The needle sizes for this project are soooo small - US 0 and US 1. They make the project feel very delicate.
