It is from Elizabeth Zimmermann's book, "Knitters' Almanac" - the lace stitch is Gull Wing stitch.
The only seams were the sleeves - I could have knitted them on two circulars I guess and then there would have been no seams at all!
Thanks to Marilyn on EZknitalong - for pithy and comprehensive instructions - even though I was too impatient and scooted along without her after Day 2 LOL!! I didn't make a mess of it after all.
Aren't the little mushroom buttons cute?? From Dave Rundell in Florida - "daverun"on ebay .
Oh yes, cream Angoretta and some lovely apple green anonymous donated yarn - I have a fair bit of this - so it will feature in some more baby sweaters I am sure!
