Tiny Tea Leaves
I am ashamed to admit how long this little sweater took me to make but it is finally finished. I do really like the look of the tea leaves pattern (I have one in my own size on the needles) but I will admit it wasn't as fun to knit as I'd hope. Perhaps it was the yarn, I'm not sure where I got this yarn but it's not a favorite. Although wool it had an almost acrylic feeling to it. I suppose none of that matters since April says she likes it and it is warm.
Since this project was started so long ago it appears this sweater will not last as long as I had hoped. When I cast on, I chose the next size up. Wow, I'm so glad I did. Still, it seems a little tight in the shoulders and the sleeves might be a bit short. For the time being however, she is more than happy to wear the "sweater mama made".
