I completely forget when I put things up on Ravelry that I should probably post them here as well. I made this little sweater not too long ago (infant size pattern from LionBrand sized down with smaller needles and a finer gauge yarn) to see if I could make something similar to one my grandmother made my aunt back in the '30's.
I'm currently working on a human-sized version in blue which I'm going to put a little brass button on but I'd like to make more miniature versions. Perhaps even smaller -- I like the idea of making it as small as possible.
