Absolutely lovely! And what a terrific birthday gift for a lucky friend.

My sister in Southern California was surprised with her first grandchild at 50 and the baby's first birthday is next month. I'm almost finished with the toddler cover sweater in the most recent Little Rowan. The pattern called for 7 CC colors and 3 balls MC (total 10) of imported Rowan $9.00/skein cotton yarn. Yowza! I substituted my favorite Shine Sport and was even able to get gauge of 7sts/1" on size 3 needles. It looks even better than the pattern in Shine Sport! And I was able to do it for only $26.00. Will finish within the week and post photo of finished sweater. I had enough left over for matching beanie!

Hurray, what a great success story for substituting yarns! Be sure to post some pictures, too :)

Excellent!
