Can it be? I'm done!
I am back from several days away, wandering the mid-Atlantic. It was damn hot, but I knitted away. I did not meet my goal of finishing the sweater before I saw Gus. I had actually finished the knitting, but not the finishing, so back home to Boston it came. I just finished sewing on the buttons, and it is done, ready to go in the mail. I will post pictures once it's been received. I will also have pics of the blanket I made. Now I keep my fingers crossed that the sweater is not too big, and that he is in enough air conditioned spaces in the coming months to actually wear it. He's 5 months old, and I'm afraid he's already too big for the 9-12 mo sweater.
For future babies, I think I'll make things they don't wear, but can use, and not outgrow. Like toys or blankets.
