Second Time Around

When there's a new niece or nephew on the way, I try to knit one sweater for them before they are born. When I asked Jason's sister what sweater she wanted for not-yet-born Cal, she asked for the the same star sweater that I made for Robbie before he was born. She even wanted the same colors!

In an effort to add something new into the knitting of this sweater, I knit it with Dale of Norway Stork instead of the Rowan 4-ply cotton called for in the pattern. The yarn was a delight to knit with - stitches came out even and it's so soft.

I finished it and gave it to Cal at Christmas, and waited for the knitting boomerang. This week, it arrived!

Speaking of Robbie, we're off to see him in New York this weekend. Hmm, I wonder if I can get some yarn shopping in while we're there...
