A Sweater…Minus The Buttons

PB’s Gidday Baby sweater is all done but the buttons.

I need to give this thing a good bath and blocking. It’s not going to solve my obvious sleeve tension issues but it will even out the body stitches and give a nice fresh smell. The sleeves didn’t turn out as long as I thought and I probably should have extended them. But I was kinda over knitting them and bracelet length are okay for babies right?

I need to dig out some buttons as well. I’m really not sure what kind or color I’m looking for. I may just hit the fabric store and browse until something strikes my fancy.

Happy Knitting!!

  1. I can’t wait to see what kind of buttons you select for this! I think this can work just fine as a 3/4 length sleeved baby sweater. Actually, it could actually work to the parents’ advantage and make the jacket last a little longer into almost toddler age since the sleeves will never seem “too short” all of a sudden.

  2. PB is going to be the best dressed baby around! It looks great and I think the shorter sleeves will be fine as all too often you end up rolling up sleeves on babies.
