Daisy Baby

Well, I finally am getting around to posting pictures of the baby sweater that derailed me from my Tubey. This should have been my olympic project. Finishing it in one week was a HUGE challenge involving several late nights, but it was worth it.

The pattern is Daisy from Knitty, designed by none other than the Yarn Harlot herself. I think she would approve.

Wanting something not traditionally pink, I went with Sugar and Cream yarn in grape, with accents in hot pink, hot green, and sunshine. The combination of the bright colors and the 3 AM flower embroidery gave the sweater a sort of Dr Seuss feeling, which I kind of liked.

Not wanting to go nuts with the flowers (and did I mention it was 3 AM) I just did a short row of them across the back.

My one bit of uber-cuteness were the three buttons. The picture came out kind of blurry but I managed to find 3 little flower buttons that matched the 3 different colors of embroidery yarn. It was too cute for words.
