Day 4 & Lillie's Little Sweater is a completed project!!

WOW, I had a chance to knit for 4 hours yesterday afternoon and into the evening allowing me to finish the sweater!!!
If you love top down knitting I highly recommend this pattern from Cottage
Creations! I did the 12 months size and it's just right!

Here is a picture of the back.

and here is a close up of the daisy buttons I used. If you double click on the pictures you can get a closer view, check out the neat edge along the front garter stitch bands. The pattern tells you to slip the first stitch purlwise of every row, yarn to back and finish knitting. This creates a nice, neat finished edge, I had never heard of this technique and plan to use it again on other sweaters!
