Kimono Sweater

I've been working on several knitting projects. The weather is just right for getting me in the mood for it I guess. I think I have become obsessed with Ravelry too. You've been there, right? If you knit or crochet you must go there now and sign up. It might take a couple days to get your invite - but it's definitely worth the wait! (And it's free!) Tons of free patterns, advice from other knitters, I could go on and on.

Anyway, I knitted this very simple sweater/vesty type thing for Sydney. It is a wrap around kimono style sweater that was knit all in one piece from the bottom up, then folded in half and stitched together. Super easy, maybe even too easy, it could have used a little more shape. But it's cute, quick and very warm.

What a sweet design! Love to hear that this knits up in one piece - I love knitting but don't like grafting so much. Lovely job, Roxanne!
