April is done. Good riddance.

The baby sweater is done, even mailed. WOOHOO!

I am quite pleased, for my first original baby sweater.

Aren't those buttons adorable?

I picked up stitches at the neck for the hood and knit it flat, then kitchenered the top once I figured it was long enough. As you can see, the cable has a couple rows too many at the top once I grafted it, but I couldn't have been bothered to rip back. At that point in time I just wanted it done.

The back is a plain 2 X 2 rib, to allow for a growing baby, and I added the extra cable panels under each arm and made cuffs for the sleeves for the same reason.
