Hey... whatcha doing?

So.... I've started this sweater this week for my little friend Grace. She's only 6 months old. This will be her Christmas present. Since she doesn't read yet, I think it's prettsy safe to post this up on the blog. Below is the back. It looks very big right now but my gauge is correct for the 9-12 month size and since it's my first baby sweater, I will just have to carry on and go with it.

Below is a picture of what the sweater will look like. The colors are very different from what I purchased and as I continue on with the knitting, you will see them. Grace likes ladybugs and that is why I picked this sweater kit. I picked this up at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. The company that makes this is Peace Fleece.
Also, below is the progress on the blanket that I have been working on. It's moving right along but since I don't have an intended recipient for it. I don't feel bad putting it to the side to work on Grace's sweater.
I worked on the sweater just a small amount this weekend since we went fishing on Sat and Sunday which kept me from knitting. I did, however, knit in the car on the way there so all in all, it was a good weekend. Sure wish I had just one more day.
