Baby's Crew Neck Raglan Sweater

I made this sweater for my Chiropractor as she is expecting mid-summer and don't know if it's a boy or a girl (ahh, the good old days, as long as it's healthy!).

Thought I could sit down in one afternoon and whip it up.  Well, the weather here in Las Vegas has been warm & beautiful which allowed my gardening chores to pull me from the knitting machines (some nerve huh?).

It was probably just as well, had to made the neck three-(3) times as I kept making really dumb mistakes.  The worst was having the neck done then realizing I had knitted a permanent cast on (with WY) without ravel cord.  So, I thought I would cut it away very carefully, hmmm, I wasn't that careful.  Doesn't that just eat at you when you do things like that?

Enough of my complaining, this was just taken off the machine and I haven't even set the stitches, blocked or seamed yet.

This is for a six-(6) month old, raglan knit neck down, all one piece.  Adapted (re-sized) from adult sweaters I make.  Yarn was some leftover "Finch" in an off white.

No Flash Used So Pattern Is Visible
Now to seam...
