Baby Sweater #2

This baby sweater just needs a bath and some seaming before it gets sent off to Colorado!

Pattern: Ribbed Jacket, Debbie Bliss, Special Knits
Size: 3-6 months
Yarn: Malabrigo Emerald Viv, 100% wool, heavy worsted
Needles: #8 bamboo circs and straights, #7 bamboo circs

I love the yarn. Malabrigo is so soft, and the green/blue shade is just lovely. The sweater is cleverly constructed, and the pattern was easy to follow. I really enjoyed picking up stitches all around to construct the shawl collar. That Debbie Bliss, she's a genius.

I still need to decide on a fastener for the front. I'll probably sew in a snap, but I would like to put something decorative in front of it.
