Losing my mind

Yesterday I completely forgot to post about another project I started -

A purple baby sweater for DD using a pattern from a baby knits book (name escapes me at the moment). I added a ruffle border (using the most simple pattern imaginable) and changed the colors from white/red/black to purple/pink/green. It has an instarsia strawberry pattern along the bottom border of the front, back, and sleeves, and it's my second try at intarsia and first larger-scale try at it (the first being the intarsia flowers on the pockets of the baby pinafore). Not sure I like it so much (I think my color changes are too tight because some of the st look stretched and the strawberry kind of bows out in the front as if it's a balloon).

Details to come later. I know this is a very vague post and I'm a bad knitting blogger by not giving specs. I get lost in the details!
