In my workbasket:

A baby sweater for my niece's baby that's due in April.

It, and when I say "it" I mean the sweater, not the baby, has a pattern that I thought would be tricky but has actually helped me keep track of where I am in the pattern.

Next up: sleeves. Then putting it all together.

The mama specifically requested "no clothes" for the baby shower, but I choose to believe that she didn't mean "no hand-knitted sweaters". Because it really is true what they say: When you make something for a baby, you have time to think good thoughts about the little person it's meant for and you begin to love that baby, and all of that becomes part of whatever you are making for the baby.
