Fait accompli!

wee little baby sweaterMorehouse Merino mostly had kits at Rhinebeck, but then I remembered a niece who is due to give birth to a boy next month. Bingo! I picked up the Baby's First Merino Sweater kit, which you see (in almost complete form, missing blocking and buttons) here.

The pattern was a blast, with nary a seam to be found. The yarn was plush and tasty, although it was chock full o'vegetable matter and pulled apart in thin spots. I fully expect this sweater to meet an untimely fate with a washing machine, but still... Every baby deserves to be clothed in this kind of deliciousness, if even for a brief moment.

And on the homefront, Mr. Casey is as charming as ever. Who can resist that face? Certainly not I.
