I remember when I first knit this sweater and it didn't seem possible that a human being could ever be so small. Well, turns out Mary is even smaller than that! The sweater is a bit big, but she doesn't seem to mind! Here's hoping we'll get at least another month out of it.
Pattern: Eloise Eyelet Cardi (Lion Brand) [rav link]--the smallest size
Yarn: Exactly one skein of Cascade Sierra, gifted by Steven
Needles: US 8
This is a great pattern for a quick and easy baby sweater. It literally took me a day to knit.
In other news, we'll be closing early on Christmas Eve and will remain closed through the weekend. Have a Merry Christmas!

After 9 months of pregnancy and 12 hours of labor, Mary Hadley Dennis was born on Thursday, December 9 at 7:18 pm. She weighed in at 8 lbs 2 ounces and 20 inches. (I know how you all like the baby stats!)
We're both doing fine. Sleep deprived, but recovering nicely.
And did I mention that she's the most beautiful person that I've ever seen in my life? Definitely knitworthy!
