I finished this about a month ago, but forgot to post it here! It's in Patons Merino, and it's from a free pattern on a skein of yarn. I made a lot of changes to make it fit my long-armed 21-month-old.

The color shows best in this picture.

I didn't finish around the collar in the natural, because I forgot and used it all on something else, and I thought it looked fine without.

The pattern was in four pieces... lots of sewing. That was the worst for me, since I'm pregnant... bending over a table, sewing it up. It probably took me two hours just to do that, especially as this was my first knitting project involving sewing pieces together.

But it was worth it. The baby loves to wear her sweater; if she sees it hanging in the closet, she asks to put it on. "Weyoo sweatoo."
