Instant Baby Sweater

There are another batch of babies coming up this winter and I decided to get my needles started for them during my last 4-day weekend of the summer. I had started knitting something else with this skein of last year’s handspun but decided what it really wanted to be was a baby sweater.

Or more precisely, a February Baby Sweater (a.k.a. Baby Sweater on Two Needles). This is the first time I’ve knit this sweater, and the second time I’ve actually followed an Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern all the way through. Last time didn’t end so well.

But fortunately, I’ve knit my way through all the bad sweaters. Also, the baby who’s going to wear this is still in utero, so no one can say that it doesn’t fit. The baby will grow into it and guaranteed won’t care about gaping necklines (or about much at all).

P.S. This sweater is impossibly soft.
