Setting in sleeves was also a new method for me. Basically, the body is knit, the sleeves are knit, and you simply have to sew the sleeves into the arm holes. This went a lot smoother than I imagined it would. I love the decreases used in this pattern, It really makes this sweater look special, in my opinion. Of course, the cables and lace design is what really makes it.
This sweater is for my newest great niece, Isabelle. She was born just a few weeks ago. I haven't met her yet, but I'm looking forward to mailing this to her tomorrow.
I love the book this pattern comes from, Baby Knits by Lois Daykin, so I just ordered my own copy from half.com. There are many patterns in this book I'm going to make. I really can't wait to start the next one.
