Baby 'Mc' Pt.2
It's safe to say, morning photo shoots are out of the question beyond this point; I need to make better use of daylight during my weekends and, perhaps, take pictures days in advance. !!!!What a concept!!!! I did manage to get a couple photos of the latest installation in project catch-up: Baby 'Mc' Part 2. (see my baby knitting strategy and game plan here).
This sweater is knit from another Drops pattern; though, I opted for a raglan sleeve and neckline over the button closure- a choice I may live to regret. I'll have to wait and hear whether his mom and dad have any difficulty squeezing his noggin through that opening before knowing for sure. I did leave a wide breadth and use a stretchy cast-off to accommodate. I typically steer clear of pullovers for babies, but I wanted my little Korean-Irish hybrid buddy to be decked out in cabled, aran-esque garments, and there aren't many exceptionally awesome Irish inspired infant patterns to choose from, shockingly.
I knit this sweater to the instructions for sz.3mos. which should mean he'll be fitting into this pretty close to the time he out grows his first sweater.

I love that sweater! The cables are beautiful, and it looks perfect for keeping a baby warm all winter long!
