Christmas has come and gone and we’re well into 2010 but here I am blogging about the only Christmas knitting I did.

This sweater has been off the needles and used so much that I almost forgot that I hadn’t blogged about it.  I finished Kiki’s Christmas sweater well before the holidays and I think that the blocking took longer than the knitting!

It fits!!!

The cuffs are a bit snug but not so tight that they threaten to cut off circulation.  I used a bunch of leftover scraps for the yoke and am still not sure about the colors working together or cancelling each other out. 

This sweater is very warm even though it’s no soft merino and it is so bright and cheerful that I loved knitting it.  The best part is that Kiki loves wearing it and even said in her own version of toddler-speak, “Mama, I like it sweater“.

    Christmassy indeed! She looks toasty warm in that sweater. The yoke colours worked well so don’t worry about it. The green and yellow broke the red just enough and adds a very festive look to the garment.

    Well done, mom!

    What a cheerful sweater. The colors really look good. Kiki looks happy too. This pattern is on my to-knit-list but never tried it. How easy was this to knit?
