I finally did the finishing the 5 hours baby sweater done in LionBrand Homespun. This was the first and last time I will ever use that yarn. It was the worst fiber I have ever worked with. It bunched, it frayed, it frizzed. It just sucked all around 😉

In fact, I decided not to do buttons & button loops just because I did not feel like working with the yarn again just to crochet the button loops on. It will just be a plain, buttonless baby cardigan. Just in the knick of time. The baby the sweater is intended for was born early this morning 🙂 Here it is:

I’ve been plugging away on  my Project of the Month shawl. I’m on skein #3 and should be done with it by the end of the week. I did find a small error a few rows down that I’m going to rip back to. But that won’t take long to reknit. I think it’s only about 1 pattern repeat (16 rows). Here is the shawl in progress:
