Now comes the hard part....




FINISHING!
I do find the baby sweater easier to work with than a larger garment, but I am still nervous about the collar, button & button hole side ribbing, and seaming. (That is my "weakest link".) The other night I tried to sew the shoulder seams, in preparation for the collar... After finishing both, I realized I sewed the fronts on the WRONG SIDES! So, a-frogging I did go.... Now I am ready to start again. Actually, the seams themselves looked pretty good, and were easier than I expected, so I hope things go more smoothly this time.

Cute baby sweater -- I'm sure you'll do a great job seaming it together, etc.

What a beautiful sweater! You've got to love anything called "Happy Baby"! I'm sure the finishing will go great.

YOU CAN DO IT! THe colors are adorable. I am so happy you showed it to us! Are you going to mattress stitch it? I finally learned, you probably already know this, to pull it taughter several stitches past the ones I first knit.
