I finished the alleged five hour baby sweater last night. It might be the math or the fact that this is a bit bigger than specified by the pattern, but it took significantly longer than five hours. It took at least five episodes of Six Feet Under, The Wedding Date in its entirety, and a couple of Judging Amy's. It still needs to be blocked and it needs a couple of cute buttons, but the knitting part is finished. I had to alter the pattern to make it a bigger baby sweater and since I'm not really around the babies so much, I have no idea what size it is. It looks pretty big and my guess is that it will fit a baby born in October next June and be too small by September. Don't all babies want to wear woolly sweaters in the summer? Everyone will have to remember that it's the effort that counts. Once I figure out what size this thing is, I'll post my version of the pattern complete with tips for novice knitters. It's not really a very hard project if you have all of the information you need and you don't have to spend all kinds of time finding said information. I find that I have a similar problem with cooking recipes. A few weeks ago, I found a really delicious sounding chicken salad recipe in Cooking Light magazine and it said to start with a roasted chicken, but had no instructions on how the chicken gets roasted. I had to call my friend Stacy who is a gourmet and she told me that I could either buy one already roasted or oven roast one myself. Would it really be that hard to include few sentences like this in the recipe or am I just supposed to know how to start with a roasted chicken?
