A Pinwheel for Hannah

I knit a Pinwheel Sweater for my 3 year old, Hannah. I love this pattern, it's quick and easy. Well, everything on it is quick except for the loopy edging. This is the second pinwheel sweater I've knit (you can see the first HERE), and I don't usually knit a pattern more than once, so that has to tell you something about how much I enjoy knitting this one.

For this sweater, I let DD into my stash and she picked out her favorite colors. Pink and Pink....LOL. It's actually Rose Heather and Dark Rose Heather colors of Lion Brand Wool-Ease. I chose to do the 2-color loopy edge shown on the adult version of this sweater instead of the single color loopy edge shown on the baby/child version. I think it turned out great :)

When I first finished this sweater and showed it to DD, she told me that she didn't like it and that she never wanted to wear it. But, she's 3 years old and I think we all know how fickle they can be. This Morning I showed it to her again and she told me she liked it, but she still didn't want to wear it. Just before I started writing this blog post, she brought it to me and asked me to help her put it on. So, it all worked out well.

Now, I'm going to concentrate on finishing the socks for my friend, and then I can focus more on doing some Christmas knitting.
