It has been a fun and very fast knit!
The seed pattern around the neck, at the bottom of the sleeves and sweater makes it even more adorable.

For: Elliot, my cousin's son
The only part that I'm not 100% satisfied is under the arms. I don't seem to master the "pick up" of stitches to avoid holes. I did some "random" sewing to have it look as good and solid as possible, but I think I may be missing something here. I'll have to do some research (and probably trial and error) on that particular subject...
I really look forward to giving it to my cousin (I haven't seen her for quite some time too) and see little Elliot (for the first time) in it!Have a good weekend everyone!
