Wee sweaters

The Aeolian wedding shawl is done. I finished the bind-off at Bluestockings this evening with much fanfare and I'll be blocking it over the weekend. Hopefully I'll have blocking pics for you on Monday.

In the meantime I'm up to my neck in baby knitting. I've been knitting for friends' babies and I've also got a second niece* on the way hence this little thing:

Wee sweater for baby Porter #2

I just need to attach the sleeves and sew the side and arm seams. The pattern is Debbie Bliss' Boat Neck Sweater from Baby Knits for Beginners of which I must have knit about an umpteen gazillion by now (to the extent that I have the, admittedly simple, directions for the smallest size committed to memory).

I'm not sure that Sirdar Sublime Angora Merino is an ideal baby yarn (it's a wee bit fluffy to say the least) but it's definitely soft and warm and I had it in my stash. I've got plenty more baby things that I want to knit like this little sister's dress (very appropriate) and I can do those in a more suitable yarn.
