I did finish the baby sweater before the child turned five! I had some anxiety about it, this is the pattern that was written by Elizabeth Zimmerman and is really beautiful, there is just one tricky feature about it when you have to hold all the stitches on holders and then restart them. When I make another one I will do a better job at that...but for the most part I am happy with this! Melissa loves it and Camryn will look adorable in it! Wear it well, Camryn!
