 Not So Busy Lizzie

I have finished the sweater I was knitting for my friend's new baby. This is her fifth child and first girl, so something Very Feminine was in order.

pattern: Busy Lizzie from Rowan's Tadpoles and Tiddlers
yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (#07 "Fuschia")

As written, the pattern has intarsia flowers on the hem and collar (they're impatiens, the "Busy Lizzies" the sweater was named for), but I thought they were a bit much, so I left them off.

This was a great knit ... add another to the "make again sometime" category.

Lovely sweater! I have the same book, I recently got it from! I'm glad to see something from it.
What size did you do? It looks big but I know that "the camera adds ten pounds"! And it also makes other things look bigger than in real life!

I love the texture of the yoke and cuffs!

Thanks so much! Lisa, it's the 9 month size ... it seems to run on the roomy side (not a bad thing for a baby knit).

Wow, that's gorgeous! Am I the only one who wants this in a grownup size for herself?? :)
