FO: Elizabeth Zimmerman's baby "surprise" sweater
Hiya! This is my first "garment" of any kind. As some of you may know, it is knit in one piece and then seamed along the shoulders. I just took a 4-week knitting class that was centered on knitting this sweater. And now...it's all done!

The best part is that I'm pregnant...so now I'll have someone to wear it! I can't attach the buttons until I know if it will be for a girl or a boy (the project is knit with buttonholes on both sides).

I'm also attaching a picture of my cat wearing the sweater...lol.

Knit on size 6 needles with Encore DK in a lovely buttery yellow color.
