FO: Sweater For Baby Nephew
I finally finished the sweater I was making for my new nephew, who is due the 30th of this month. I didn't finish it in time for the shower, but at least I completed it before the child was born. It was fun to knit, but the seaming gave me fits. I had to redo it so many times, but finally, here's the finished sweater...

The finished product makes all that fiddling with the seaming worth it though, doesn't it? It looks fantastic. You're going to have one well dressed nephew!

Thank you for all your compliments. It was made with Lion Brand Baby Soft in the color, Bluebell. Yes, as much trouble as I have with seaming, it really is worth it.

Really beautiful!

Hope you can post some pics with him wearing it. If he has blue eyes, it'll make them pop off the page~~
