What a difference a day makes

Wow, I love this concept of "whole day off with no plans". We should have holidays more often! Aside from some long-overdue work in the yard, I spent most of my Memorial day holiday going from this:


to this:


Guess who is working on a deadline? That's right. I'm a Bad Aunt.
The yarn (Tahki Cotton Classic) and the pattern (Plymouth P392) came from my stash, thus avoiding a trip to the yarnshop this weekend, phew!

As you can see in the first photo, I eliminated the only seam in the pattern by knitting the sleeves in the round. Other than that, I followed the pattern pretty closely.

This project is just whipping along, thanks to the size seven needles and small size of the finishd sweater. I've got about 2 more ridges to knit on the body and some rework on the sleeves, so I think I'll get this one in time for the baptism in 12 days.

Wow, that's some super speedy knitting! It looks cute. Hopefully I can see it up close at the Meetup tomorrow.
