FO: Baby Sweater
Finally, the hooded baby sweater for my 'eldest' is finished, just need to find some buttons! But the doggone thing is done, sewing up,weaving in ends, crocheted border and all! It's the Springtime Cardigan from Leisure Arts 4640, Knits for the Modern Baby.

Being my first knitted sweater, it was definitely a learning experience. Working with two balls of yarn was the most difficult part for me to get the hang of. But, the lacy pattern stitch was quite easy to memorize and worked up nicely.
