Franny Onsy

Pattern: Berroco's Franny from Booklet #245 - for size 12 months
Yarn: Universal Yarn's Pebbles Color 14 (100% Polymide)
Needles: size 8
This was fairly quick to make, but I'm getting to where I dislike knitting stockinette. The next time I make it, I'll do a couple of things differently:
  1. knit the bottom pieces at the same time (two pieces on needles) and then join to knit in the round until the arms.
  2. put 3 button holes on the left shoulder. The pattern called for only one.
  3. knit with a lighter weight yarn. I think this is going to be a very warm outfit.

I also would like to embellish this, but because the recipient decided to find out the sex of her baby when it's born, well, I'm stuck with making generic baby stuff.
