Twelve or so inches of snow kept us outside shoveling through the weekend but dipping temperatures (-10 degrees /night) also confirmed my nestled status on the couch with knitterly things.
I think I've had this yarn since 1998; a few skeins in different colorways sitting in the bottom of a stash basket. It was an instant decision to knit the cozy 5 Hour Baby Sweater for newborn, neice Julia.
This is about the 2 hour mark for me.
Completed in close to the recommended time and now ready for blocking. I substituted a seedstitch hem instead of what the pattern called for. On my long list of errands tomorrow are 3 buttons to match. This photo below shows the true color.
I was thinking of a hat or booties to match but opted instead for a Bitty Bear, Summer 2005). The eyes are googly and now looking at this photo I'll have to make a them smaller along with the bow!
