Secret Project Complete

Here is my completed Pea Pod baby Set for my niece. After not really blogging much about it, I was so far behind that when I got to Cincinnati for the holiday weekend, I actually told my sister in-law that it was for her baby, and proceeded to finish it at my in-laws house over the weekend.

Actually I finished the knitting of the sweater in the Philly airport when our flight was delayed by more than 2 hours on Friday, then cast-on the hat when I was done. The rest of the weekend was spent knitting the hat, the seaming, buttons ect....

Weaved in the last end about 5 minutes before hubby was ready to get in the car to drive to airport, and snapped a quick picture before heading back to Philly.
I was very happy with how this came out.

Pattern: Pea Pod Baby Set (free) by Kate Gilbert
Size: Sweater- 12 months, Hat -17.25"
Needles: Size 5
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Sport in Grass Color 6 skeins

A few things I would change in the future when I knit this again (and I will). I might put another button hole on the collar or a snap.
I also picked up the neckline a little unevenly, but all in all it didn't come out too bad.

Love the yarn, so soft, and machine washable.

Onto more loose ends, I am now about 1.5 inches into my second sock of the red Harlot socks, and hope to finish those over the next few days.

It turned out beautifully! I actually just cast on the same sweater over the holiday.

Absolutely beautiful baby set - I'll have to look up the pattern as you inspired me by how nice it is. Look forward to seeing your socks - Karrie
