This is the end...

I can't believe that April is over! Before I reveal my final project for the knitalong, I want to thank Amy for setting this whole thing up. It was so fun! And it definitely helped me to finish I could of projects in danger of languishing, not to mention finally start this baby sweater!

This is the Two Needle Baby Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmermann from her Knitter's Almanac. I've also seen this sweater referred to as the February Babby Sweater. I used a bit less than one skein of Sirdar Breeze, which is a dk weight cotton blend. The construction of this sweater is so fun! After knitting the yoke, the sleeves are done before joining the body, so when you're finished, you only have to make two small seams under the arms. The only thing I wish I had done differently is to make a selvedge stitch on the arms. Seaming that lace was kind of a pain.

That is one seriously, seriously cute baby sweater. It wants DK weight, though, eh?
