Sweet Pea's sweater

Remember how I said I had gotten brave started a little sweater for Sweet Pea? Well, last week and weekend everything aligned for me to work on finishing it: a long wait while getting blood tests done, a cold which kept me confined at home, and the master's golf tournament, which happens to go quite nicely with crocheting. And finish it I did.

I used a free pattern from Ravelry for the sweater and made up the hat pattern all by myself. The yarn is TLC cotton plus yarn, and the buttons are vintage shell buttons from my stash.

There are some imperfections, but that's to be expected from my first ever attempt at sweater making. Overall I'm delighted with how it turned out, though, and am eager for more sweater-making adventures.

What do you think. Does she look cute in it? I'm sure it'll look much cuter when she is actually here are fits into in. : )
