I have been making such a slow start on my baby sweater. It's great to watch all of your progress, however. I finally got my KnitPicks Shine Sport in sand, and the color wasn't what I expected. I showed it to my husband, and he said, "That's a girl color." How can a brown shade be a girl color? It wasn't what I wanted either, though: too coppery. Anyway, I swatched some, and got guage with size 2 needles, so I ordered more (or Valerie ordered for me, thank you!) in the color willow. Now it's just more waiting. Of course, all of my other knitting is waiting too! I hope to at least have a cast on edge to show soon! Am I crazy to knit a sweater on size 2s? I think I need to start with something bigger gauge...and for summer!

Huh, I kinda like the color, but then I have 4 girls...
I hear ya about the size 2's... I just finished a hat on size 2's, but it was just a hat, a sweater would be even slower going. But it is a baby sweater, so take heart, it's definitely doable!
enjoy the process, and the last couple weeks of pregnancy,
happy knitting,

It's all in the semantics. You're not crazy, your brave! It's not a sweater, it's a *baby* sweater. You can do it!

You can do it!! I just finished a sweater for my 2 year old on size 3's. I won't lie....I thought it would never end, but I love the end result and so it is all worth it now!
