I hope you are doing super and enjoying the weekend. I finally started to make my first baby item and also my first article of baby clothing. Since we live in Florida, we do not use sweaters very often but there are days in the fall and winter when the temperature drops and sweaters are brought out. Unfortunately this past year, we had only about two days like this, but I suspect as 2012 comes closer to an end, we will have weather cool enough for the baby to need to put on a sweater.
I decided to start out with a basic sweater pattern - possibly the most basic one, and I was very happy with it. I used the Lion Brand Free Pattern called Lion Brand Baby's First Sweater, Soft & Simple Raglan Jacket free from Lion Brand website. You may need to make a log-in in order to see the pattern.

|All of the pieces, the back is in the middle, the top left and top right are the sleeves, |
and the bottom left and right are the front sides

|All the pieces connected and ends woven in|
|Reading for the collar, trim and buttons!|
Enjoy the weekend,
