Off the needles: sweater for AJ

I finally knit my first sweater for AJ!




I know that a lot of knitters make things for their children from before they are even born, but I just didn't have the heart to knit her something that could only be work for a very short time.




Using some recycled Cascade Eco-Wool and Veera Valimaki's Fisherman's Pullover pattern, I was able to whip this up in less than a week.




The pattern is easy to modify and for this version I choose to shorten the sleeves.




If you are interested in making a similar modification all you have to do is knit one row, knit two rows of a 2x2 rib and then cast of. Easy peasy!
