I finished seaming up Eva's sweater and sewing on the buttons so today wasn't a total bust. It fits her like a dream! It's got a little pocket in the front. The pattern is a leaflet from Wendy/Peter Pan. While I was knitting I was thinking the pattern was a piece of junk but now that it is finished and it looks so great I'm beginning to forget about it. Still...I think the next one I make will have some major changes. There is really no reason for the raglan sleeves to be sewn in. It can easily be done in one piece. The yarn I used is Kaleidescope DK . It's a lilac colorway (I can't remember exactly what it was called and I don't have the ball band handy). I bought a few extra skeins in a denim color so I can make one of these for Caleb. There is an option for a zippered collar with no hood. I think I may do that version instead for Caleb.
