Secret Sweater

I do knit. Really, I do. It's just that almost everything I make is for other people, so I can't post the surprise here. But in this case, I decided that I'm sure that my brother and sister-in-law don't read this, so I'm posting about the sweater I'm making for their new baby. As you can see, he's shaped like a starfish.

No, not really. In the end, I don't like this pattern because it comes in five pieces, which I now have to sew together. Total bummer. On Monday I got myself to suck it up and dive in. I attached the shoulders. No problem. Then the hard part--I attached the right sleeve and closed up the right side. Great! Only, gah! I attached the sleeve inside-out. I have now ripped all of that out, and the sweater is in time-out. Just looking at it makes me feel a bit sick.

Oh, ouch, I hate it when things like that happen. Hopefully it will only require a short trip to time out to think about what it did, then return ready to be good. It looks so cute!

hmm... that's hard. I took a class on finishing once and it helped immensely, I didn't feel so overwhelmed seaming things up anymore. The baby sweater is super cute though. What kind of yarn??
