She picked a sweater vest. Of course, this was this week, so with limited time to research every pattern book available, we went with a modified version of the Debbie Bliss Cable Sweater from Simply Baby (she also lives in Sacramento, two hours away, so this was all done via internet...gotta love it!). Only thing I have to do is modify the pattern by a) making the smaller size smaller....he is that little still (!) and b) turning the sweater into a vest...sure no problem (insert the theme song again if you would).
Actually, now that I have worked on it a lot today, I'm feeling some relief. I can do it. And it is looking sooooooo cute. I'm using Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino for the first time and I just love it! Oh, and this post by Wendy about cabling without a cable needle saved my life. I definately feel like I can finish this in time!
