Niece sweater

Niece sweater

I knit this for my six year old niece, hence the name. I like the yarn for knitting, the bulk made the knitting go really quickly but the bulk also made it hard to seam. The end result was nice and I really loved the yarn color. I had a hard time deciding on a button color and ended up going with the one I hated the least. (Actually I like the effect of wood buttons but the all said dry clean only and I knew that no sweater for 6 yr old should be dry clean only)

Yarn: Patons Melody
Colour: Mango
Skeins: I can't remember but it was just enough to finish it.
Knitting Time: May 23rd - Sept 7 due to my adversion to seeming. The actually knitting was finished sometime in July.
