Did you swatch? Whenever I start a larger project, I make sure to take the time.

that's exactly how my DS was. DD was getting all the stuff and he'd get a hat that he didn't want to wear. I asked him if he wanted mommy to knit him a sweater and he said yes please mommy.

so of course while I was working on it I was praying that it would fit. And it did perfectly

I didn't swatch. I was knitting a different pattern (not the caelum) and I didn't even think to do it.

Nice sweater Erica!

Cute longies Anna!

I cast on some preemie longies last night for little miss, because nothing fits her yet. They are doing something funky though, so I am not sure I will keep them.

It isn't that big, and I have been downsizing a ton. Most of it is on Rav.

Erica, love that little boy sweater!

Action shot of the romper:

Probably the last one since she is potty trained. I might still do some overalls next winter.
