Finally finished sweater

I finally finished up the helena sweater that I crafted for my littlest. I modified the pattern slightly for the trim work and went with garter stitch detailing. Regardless, it still looks cute! Details are on ravelry.

The blue of this sweater is lovely. It really brings out the blue of her eyes and sets off her red hair. I want to wait until she's walking to put this on her - which she is almost doing. She'll wander around with me, by one hand, but hasn't mustered the courage to take that first step on her own. Although I don't remember, it must be scary to learn to walk. Trusting yourself for the very first time is a pretty big deal I imagine.
