I just made this:


It's a 5 hour Baby Sweater and it came out really cute.  It really did only take me about 5 hours.  I made it in some purple Red Heart that I had lying around to test out the pattern before I invested in some nicer yarn.  I'm crossing my fingers that it'll soften up considerably when I wash it with some Downy. 

Tell me, are you a badfish too?

I made this...http://www.arcadiaknitting.com/projbaby.htm
It uses size 5 needles and goes very fast...also it's knit in one piece so you only have to sew up underarm seams!!! yay I hate sewing up seams...here's a pic of my finished sweater (the links pic isn't that great)

I knitted these two sweaters on size fives:

I adapted this pattern from a Sirdar pattern.  There are baby sweaters out there that use larger needles. If you live near a "real" yarn store, the sales people will be happy to help you find something that you'll enjoy knitting.

This one was also on fives (I think):

Can't wait to hear/see how it turns out.  I'll post a picture of mine as soon as I get around to weaving in the ends. Smiley
