Knit: Helen's First Day

2011 Aug BTS Sweater 8

Today I sewed the buttons on Helen's fall sweater: Audrey's First Day from Petite Purls. Here is the Ravelry Link to my project page. I made this sweater as a part of the August Knit Along with the Knit While They Nap group on Ravelry. Luckily, I completed the majority of the project before the birth of sweet Clare, otherwise I may never have finished!

I really loved this pattern.  The construction is simple and seamless. I can really appreciate a project that requires very little sewing up once you have finished knitting. The eyelet detail in the raglan shaping really adds that special something to this basic sweater.

Helen seems to be taken with it herself and happily modeled the finished product for me! I call that a big success!

  1. I just love that sweet girl !! <3

  2. That really is a sweet sweater. And Helen is looking super cute in it. Would you be interested in joining Ginny's Yarn Along on Wednesdays? I'd be curious to know what books you're reading lately along with your works in progress.
