I've been busy making a second sweater for my grandson. My biggest difficulty is finding fingering weight yarn with no wool content. I'm allergic to wool, and my grandson has a condition that makes it difficult to regulate his body temperature, and his doctor has said no wool products! I was able to buy some acrylic baby yarn before we left home, but I wanted some non-pastel colours. I found some cotton/acrylic mixed yarn to make the latest sweater, but with a little one, it is so much easier if the finished product can go in the washer and dryer, especially when Mom goes back to work.
I don't usually knit with variegated yarns, but I loved the colours in this one, and the surprise pooling that occurred only in the chest area!
