baby geek sweater

The child's spiral geek sweater from Loop-d-Loop in Crystal Palace cotton chenille. What a cool pattern! When I heard that MIT-grad friends of ours were having a boy, I knew I wanted to make this sweater. I started the project on time, but working on my book and my own baby kept me from finishing it until the little guy was 6 months old! Luckily, the pattern is a bit oversized. I really enjoyed the pattern (okay, not so much the weaving in of ends on the front) and the chenille is soft and squooshy. It did cause the garment pieces to bias a bit (as it always does when I use it), but in a baby sweater, it doesn't usually make a huge difference. It's cute as a button!
