Two Gold and Two Bronze Medals?

I passed this little beauty off to my friend, Shanetha, today:

Shanetha's sweater

I have to say I never looked this good at 39 weeks pregnant! Shanetha was worried that she wasn't going to make it through the weekend, but I told her she had to make it to work on Monday so I could give her the baby sweater I had knit for her impending little boy.

The Particulars:

Yarn: Bernat Softee Baby Sport
Pattern: Baby Raglan
Needles: Size US 2 and 4, 16" circulars and dpns

All in all, this sweater took me about 10 days to knit (interspersed with knitting my socks). I think if I was only working on this, I could finish it in 2-3 days. It is definitely the easiest baby sweater pattern I have ever used.


My medal count? Well, I have two complete finished objects -a baby blanket for Lauren (which I forgot to take a picture of before I gave it to her) and Shanetha's baby blanket. I have also finished two socks, but they are not a pair - rather, consecutive socks from different pairs. I'm counting that as two golds and two bronze medals!

Ha ha! Love the sweater pose! I'm making baby sweaters next...I'm stockpiling them for the next baby wave.

Ooh, look how the dark blue stripes mirror each other. Nice job.
I didn't look that good at 39 wks either - big old bloater, me!

Dang, she looks great. Her first?
The sweater looks so cute on her (tiny) belly.
