Little Sweater

About two weeks ago I bought the most beautiful yarn and started knitting a little sweater for my three year old, but soon it became clear that I hadn't enough of the yarn. The store where I bought it sold the last two balls of wool to me and couldn't order yarn of the same paint bath, so I had to find another solution, because I definitely wanted to make a sweater of the yarn. I asked you, my readers, for ideas and got some great suggestions. Thanks for that!! In the end I unraveled the whole sweater and started all over, but knitted the ribs in another color. This is the result:




I think the contrasting ribs make the blue/grey/green yarn even more beautiful, don't you?
