I finished it in time for the baby shower! And that is the very exciting news about this particular sweater.
I was weaving in the last few stitches on this sweater the morning of the baby shower while my daughter (who I hired for the occasion) baked cinnamon breakfast muffins for the same party. (I highly recommend growing your own 11-year-old gourmet.)
The pattern and yarn links for this sweater are in this blog post, if you're interested in knitting one for yourself (or an expectant friend).
I was pleased with how it turned out: the "envelope" neck opening really is perfect for a big, wobbly baby head.
I also made a matching hat out of the same yarn:
The pattern is one I've used before and you can find it for free here.
Looking forward to meeting the recipient soon! :)
Peace of Christ to you,
