Baby sweater progress

I have 4" knit on the body of the baby sweater. Only another 4" to go before I bind off for the arm holes. I'm knitting the front and the back at the same time and it is going pretty fast despite using 1's.

I'm making the torso longer than the first one that I knit with this pattern. I felt the torso was a bit on the short side so a couple of inches are necessary. I do love this colorway. It just reminds me of the first day of school and a pristine box of crayons.

Hopefully I can have it finished and baby Walker can wear it in the Fall, and then pass it onto baby Landra, and then baby Lloyd, and then baby Kretchmar, and then baby Monthony, and then baby Bruce....

Have I mentioned that a LOT of my friends are having babies lately? Three are due in January. I guess we all know what they were doing in April.

I'm so glad that Sternfeld's baby boom has moved north. For a while you couldn't drink the water around here for fear of getting knocked up.
