Cats love sweaters too

The baby sweater for Lillian is finally finished. It was probably one of the easiest knits I have had in a long time, maybe because the pattern was straight forward or maybe because I am knitting it for my own baby as opposed to a gift...a first for me. So I didn't finish knitting it in two weekends. It did go very quickly (size 7 needles), but I had some other projects slip themselves into the mix and I knitted the right side of this sweater at the wrong end of the sleeve, so that put a wrench in the quick finish. Regardless, I finished up this last week and is probably a record knit for me. May 12-June 15. The specs are Ribbed Jacket from Special Knits: Debbie Bliss. I used 3-50g skeins (or 330yds) of Suri Merino by Plymouth Yarn (55% suri alpaca, 45% extra fine merino wool) Enjoy!
