Baby Sophisticate in Spud & Chloe

My good friend had her second child this past January and I just couldn't decide what to make him. The friend is a knitter, very, very crafty, and generous with her awesome crafty gifts, so I wanted to make something a bit more special for her new little guy. When I saw the baby sophisticate sweater by Linden Hefler, I knew it was perfect. I also knew that I must knit it in Spud & Chloe. The knitting was really easy, the yarn was fabulous, and I found the perfect buttons. Then it took me like two weeks to weave in ends, another week to sew on buttons, and almost two weeks to put it in the mail, but I sent it off last week and it has hopefully found its way to its new little owner and fingers crossed it fits. I read that it runs a bit small, but I added a little length all over and my gauge was spot on, so fingers double crossed.

I do LOVE it! I told Leo he'll be wearing every single day as soon as the weather is even the slightest bit appropriate for a sweater.

I can't wait to see pictures of him in it :)
