sweater (also titled: ugh!)

So I'm crocheting a baby sweater for a friend. Because she's paying for it, I wanted to make my own pattern (didn't want to worry about a copyright, ya know). Let's just say I'm not very good at anything that requires measuring, keeping track, paying attention.


I've made several attempts. I've pulled out and restarted. I crocheted an entire sweater that ended up being much too small and another where the shoulders were just wrong. I've gone and bought more yarn. Now I think I'm finally onto one that is going to work. All that is left is to finish up the body, add length to the sleeves & finish the edges.


And then attempt to figure out booties.

Adorable. Hope it's worth the effort. Now that you know what you're doing, how 'bout matching sweater vests for Easter?! Not that Mr. Independent Middle Child would actually wear one :(
