    What the caterpiller calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.
    -Richard Bach

    The alternate title to this post should be, "Or, Why You Should Always Read the Pattern Through Before Starting." In this case, a picture is worth a thousand words. Remember how I started this baby sweater, all full of hope and joy and sweetness and light? Remember how I blithely commented that I just grabbed the yarn and needles and got started, paying no attention to what was to come? I should have. See all those yarn ends? It was getting depressing carrying around a mess that looked like that, so I took some time out in the middle to seam up the sides and the sleeves. This way I am that much closer to finishing the whole thing. When the knitting's done, so will I be. I'm close. And there's no zipper - just a single button looming!

    Yuck, I hate the hangy yarns. I decided to make a concerted effort to start weaving those things in as I go from now on...we'll see how that goes. Such a cute knit, and I love the color!

    I like the color too, it will be really nice when completed; but, I've got to say, I am not so much a fan of seaming and that first shot has some nightmarish qualities to it...in a cute way!

    It looks very cute! I love the wee baby things - too bad they don't stay wee for very long.

    Not sooo hard when the sweater is turning out so cute! I love how cheerful the color is -- not one I'd think to choose, but maybe now that'll change ;-)
