When At First You Don't Succeed...

....shamefully refuse everyone's good advice to rip it out and instead just start all over again, but in a different shade of pink.

Pattern: The February Baby Sweater, by EZ, of course, found in _The Knitter's Almanac_

Yarn: Caron's Simply Soft, 1.5 skeins (acrylic! gasp! sorry EZ! next time it'll be wool!)

Needles: US 5 circulars

Modifications: No real modifications, except for the helpful advice of those many who have gone before who suggested casting on an extra stitch on each side of the sleeves (so cast on 8 instead of 7 stitches), and then you can slip this extra stitch each time. This slipped extra stitch will create an easy-to-seam-border for the under-arm seam.

Other final comments and thoughts found here on my blog for anyone who might be interested.

  • I have some C.SS left in my stash,too, that would look great done up in this sweater. I'm glad you posted and weren't ashamed to say what yarn you used. It came out beautiful and it's nice to know that the C.SS works out so nicely for this sweater( and it's easy and inexpensive to get). Nice job! What size does it end up being?
