up for grabs

ETA: The sweaters are no longer available!

---

Leah has outgrown one sweater and one top that I knit for her. I'd rather they go to knitters (or knitters' daughters) than Goodwill, so here's what I have up for grabs:
First is the Hybrid sweater. Chest 34", length 21", sleeve 17". Knit w/ 2 strands of reclaimed cotton and 1 strand of variegated tencel (see the blog post linked above for better pics of the resulting fabric). The back is stockinette. Has had lots and lots of wear, but is holding up well except for the fact that there are cotton yarn ends that have worked free and are poking out here and there. Easily fixed w/ a tapestry needle and a little time re-tucking the ends. Worth the effort, IMO.

Next is the Josephine top, also knit with reclaimed cotton. Chest 36", length 19", distance from shoulder to tie row 8" (this is the main measurement that doesn't work for Leah anymore -- measure yourself/your intended recipient carefully to see where this horizontal tie will be), armscye 5-1/2" tall. No pokey-outey ends on this one.

Both could stand to be washed, but they're in otherwise good shape.

Awww. Cute, cute! What great stories, sure you want to give them up? I'm so sentimental my DD is wearing clothes my mom made for me. Of course she wouldn't wear them if she didn't like them.

Probably too late to the party but if you still have the Hybrid Sweater I know my daughter would love it. So pretty, and purple is her favorite color.
