I finished the Blasted Baby Sweater and gave it to the intended recipient (my little cousin Lia) before she outgrew it! Yay me! I'm really proud of it.

Elizabeth Zimmermann aficionados will notice a deviation from the original pattern: those little rows of lacy holes at the top. What happened was, by the third time I restarted the sweater, I had temporarily forgotten that you have to knit into the back of the stitch when you do a "make one." It created holes, of course. But then I decided I was damned if I was going to restart the sweater a fourth time. The holes look fairly intentional anyhow.

So now I'm ready to start a grownup sweater...for myself!
