Minni

I'm awefully proud of this one......




Pattern: Minni by Lena Alva, 6-9 month
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock - 1 skein each in Archangel and Cordovan.
Needles: Addi Turbo, 24 inch 2.0 and 2.5mm , Knit Picks Harmony DPN's 2.0 and 2.5 mm
Time: March 20 - May 21, 2010
Modifications: I didn't have a good contrast color for the I-cord and trim, so I just used the secondary yarn. I felt that if I added a third color it might be too much, and I'm glad I ended up doing it this way! Also, I left off the crochet edging...because I just didn't want to do it. Ditto the embroidered square. Notes up on my Ravelry page.
Gifted to....
Meghan the Marvelous Wonder Trainer! (Who is much prettier...my camera really didn't like the interior lighting this AM.) She deserves every single stitch.

That is such a sweet little sweater! And what a neat gift for your trainer. I agree with Jenny, it's very cute how the baby is "wearing" it in the photo.
