a challenge

Can I knit a 5-hour baby sweater in 5 hours?
The answer is no. However, it really is a quick knit (just not 5 hours).

Pattern: Quickie Baby Sweater
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, just under 2 skeins
Needles: US 9 Clover straights

A fairly easy pattern that yields a cute, tiny sweater. The fabric is very loose and floppy at this gauge. I would use a chunky yarn if I were to knit it again. I still need to pick out a ribbon to put through the eyelets at the neckline.
