More progress

Last night I finished the front and back of the DB baby sweater - tonight I plan on finishing the sleeves. This sweater seems to be the sweater of mistakes, though - first I knit too small a size (well, the baby grew quicker than his sister did at the same age), then I managed to make a stitch error in there (not a horribly glaring error, but I know it's there) and THEN, at about 2 inches to go, I discovered that I was knitting the pieces on US 9s instead of the 8s the pattern calls for. Sigh. I checked my measurements, and the body will end up being about an inch to an inch and a half larger in chest size. Since the yarn is so soft, I may just take the seams in a bit - I can knit the sleeves to the correct size without harming the overall pattern.

Ah well, you live, you learn.
