WIP Wednesday

My February Baby Sweater: Coming Soon to a FO Friday near you!

I was hoping to put the finishing touches on my FBS this past weekend, but to paraphrase Robert Burns, "the best laid schemes of mice and knitters oft go awry." On Saturday, I was altogether cranky (TMG informed me that I was, in fact, a "sourpuss"). Our new sofa got delivered (albeit half an hour past the end of our "delivery window") and my family came over to see it. I have to admit that I don't even remember Sunday at all! Ergo, the FBS is returning for what I hope will be it's last WIP Wednesday appearance!
Despite my setbacks, I did manage to finish the body and most of the first sleeve (all but about 2 rows of garter stitch) this week. I haven't gotten the buttons for it yet, because I like to save that part as sort of a "prize" for finishing the knitting and weaving in of ends.
Here it is in all of it's unfinished glory...


  1. So sweet! I need to find a baby girl to knit another for!

  2. That sweater is darling! I love the color, and I love the design. Beautiful :)
