There's no good reason at all why this project took so long--I'm embarrassed to say it's been over 3 years since I began this project!--but finally FINALLY this baby sweater is complete! Knitting knit, seams sewn, and ends woven in. Whew!

This is a baby sweater from Debbie Bliss's Baby Knits for Beginners. The pattern actually calls for two pockets on the front, but 1) I can't be bothered to knit more for this sweater and 2) pockets? Seriously? What is a baby going to put into these pockets? Nothing useful--that's what I think.

It's been so long since I started this sweater that I cannot even remember who I knit it for in the first place. Luckily, there's been a million babies cropping up, so no problem finding a recipient.

I have to thank Stacie profusely for helping me go through my stash and UFOs way back in January. This was among them and even though it's August, I'm just so pleased to have completed it. Also, Stacie/Dr. Knitting actually sewed many of my seams. Boy oh boy do I hate sewing seams.
