Finally outgrown at 3.5 months / 14 lbs.

June 1 - blocking. The first thing I’ve made for my little one :)

September 11 - sewed the buttons on. Now all I need is a photo.

Oh superwash…. I love the color of this yarn, but I should have washed my swatch. This sweater grew and grew when wet, and I had to smush it together and hope for the best. It recovered somewhat, but is much more floppy than I like. Next time I would go down a needle size or two.
