I Want to Knit

I *heart* baby clothes
I think this little baby sweatshirt is so cute! I'm already picturing it with the sleeves a different color, like those long-sleeved tshirts that are popular.

I still need to weave in the ends, but I started this cutie Thursday morning before work, and by Friday night the seams were sewn. And I worked until 8pm on Thursday, and had a root canal Friday, so it wasn't like I had 24 hours of straight knitting time. Of course, that ruler is included for scale, so I know it's not surprising that a wee little sweater only took a short amount of time. I'm just really amused by this.

Yannick isn't so sure if he likes it, because of the rolled edges I'm sure it doesn't look "finished" to him. But I know how cute and comfy it will be on the baby. I'm just a bit surprised that the pattern lists this as 3-6 months, as, while small, it's pretty big (for a baby). And I would have thought the body would be longer, or the sleeves shorter, but I guess infants aren't known for their long torsos, most of which are taken up by diapers.

Want to know the best part? The whole sweater is one ball of Patons Decor. 1 BALL. I didn't even come close to running out...there are still a few meters left. (Ok, had I made any of the sections longer I probably would have run out, but ball!) I'm already thinking of all the odd balls of Decor I have lying around and coming up with some cute Fair Isled or striped versions.

I'm off to go swatch for the booties now, and at some point find the time to make a Skor Truffle dessert and Spaghetti Squash Mediterranian Salad, both for lunch tomorrow in the country.
