Can't Stop

I seriously can't stop making this little baby sweater.
It's just the perfect little sweater.
So many ways to make it, and so easy to size it up or down.
Four already done, and another on the needles.
And isn't it amazing that the human body is shaped just right for raglan increases from the neck? I mean, it's just so cool that you can start out with the stitches you need for the right neck size, and work regular increases, and you get shoulders and underarms and sleeves and all of it just exactly where it needs to be.

I love knitting.

(The second one, in that lovely moss green, barely fit my new little nephew when we went out to visit. Hence the repeat of style and color, in a larger size, for my fourth.)

sweater pattern is Top Down Raglan Baby
yarns from the top: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in Chocolate,
Cascade 220 Sport in Moss,
a mish-mash of sport-weight yarns from my stash,
and Berroco Vintage worsted.

I prefer pieced sweaters, but this one is cute. My arms, knit in the round are always difficult to match in size to my back and forth gauge, and I hate the holes after pick up and trying to fix them....but I may be a bad knitter. In fact, I know I am bad.

I just hate seaming knits so much, if I can't find a seamless pattern, I figure out how to make it happen with what I've got.
Either that, or I sew up the seams on my sewing machine. (I know, very bad, but, there it is.)
