FO: Drive Thru Sweater (aka Quicko Cheapo)
Pattern: Drive-Thru by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Fired Brick, Truffle, Copper and Camel Heather
Size: A little smaller than 2
Recipient: my niece Penny, who will hopefully be able to wear this for two years. (modeled by Emily as it is in transit to Pen)
A quick and easy gift for any kid. The colorwork is so simple I don't know that you could even call it colorwork. I cast on 104 stitches to make it a bit smaller and then just did the math for the yoke.
One major modification was the omission of the fourth decrease section and the neck ribbing. I "finished" the neck 4 times before I got something that would fit over a child's head.
The yarn was delicious to work with although I bought way too much of the red. It's soft and squishy and I hope, hope, hope that it'll stand up to washing the way it says it will.
