I had it knit and ready for pictures in time, yes. But I didn't have the right buttons and it wasn't blocked (still awfully darn cute in the pictures though!).
I chose to limit the striping to the top of the cardigan. I thought about doing no stripes, and I thought of doing just 2 cream stripes. But this is a nice in-between balance.
I wish it were superwash wool for easier care, but now that he's a bit older and not spitting up every 5 minutes (like his sister does on occasion), it should last him a long time.
I knit the 3T instead of the 4T...the 4T seemed to be very large. I think this means that he'll be growing out of this sweater in a somewhat rapid fashion, but I don't mind. I can always knit him another.
