To make myself feel better, I picked up a new project. I had it in my mind that I wanted to knit a sweater for the baby. My hope was that the sweater would be newborn-ish size, and maybe she would be able to wear it right away.
The pattern is called Lucille, and I used Malabrigo Sock Yarn. It was an addictive little sweater, and I'm very happy with the result. Soft and light.
I compared the finished sweater to a newborn sweater that was a hand-me-down from my nieces, and it's probably closer to a 3 month size. But at least it won't be too small.
My only complaint with this pattern, and one that I could have fixed along the way had I thought about it, was the number and arrangement of the buttons. I think there's too many and they're too close together, but I'm still happy with the result.
