Fast Knitting

I just finished promising that I'd show more in progress stuff and here I went and finished a sweater in about 24 hours. Whaaaat?

It's true. The Baby Boy 5-Hour Sweater.

I won't claim that I sat down and knitted for five hours straight. I also won't claim that I actually finished it in five hours - mostly because I didn't time myself but I also kinda doubt it took me so little time. But it was fast - about 24 hours between cast on and cast off.

I still have the ends to weave in but hey, I said I was going to share more WIP's so this could count - if barely.

It's a very sweet pattern, knit from the top down, in Manos del Uruguay, colour 111, on size 5.5mm needles. I have had the yarn for ages and just couldn't find the right pattern for it, until now. I used about a skein and a about a third. The pattern calls for 4 oz, so that's close.

It's a quick and very satisfying knit, perfect for a new baby in your life.

And because I need a new cute picture of the boy on here, this one is Callum and his granny sharing grapes at the table. He's clearly enjoying them!

Happy Tuesday, Michele

Callum is just adorable, and the sweater is very sweet. What's the fiber content?
