I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

Behold, the turtle sweater on sweet Baby C. You can tell from his smile that he already has the appropriate level of appreciation for hand knits.

I could not be more thrilled that it fits. Clearly, he’s the perfect size.

I bought these buttons specifically for Turtle in NYC when she was newly pregnant. So, I put them to use on this cute baby kimono. Behold, my first sweater!

Fastenings: Buttons are sewn on and have snaps behind them because button loops now give me nightmares and you need to knit the garter border if you want button holes. I figured that out a scoach too late. Scottiegirly suggested the snaps and The Husband consulted on button placement. I may have asked him where to put the turtles 50 times. may have.

Overall, I loved this pattern; it’s great for a first sweater…and I’m feeling pretty good about my decision not to try matching the green on the buttons.
Ps. Check out what other folks have finished at Tami’s Amis and Fiber Arts Fridays
