Nearly a Sweater

The baby sweater is nearing completion. I used this pattern (but I think it is taking me longer than five hours).
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Shadows, Color: Dark Moss
Needles: US 10 Denise

All the yarn snobs may think ill of me for using acrylic, but the new mom has had enough to deal with since baby boy arrived earlier than expected. It's gotta be machine wash and dry all the way.

I am pleased with the way this is turning out. I think I will make a hat to match. Here's a close-up.

Oh Sheila,this is sooooo pretty. Any yarn snob who wants to handwash baby clothes is welcome to it! Not me...there's plenty of easycare yarn to knit for babies, and you obviously found a great choice.
