My First Baby Hoodie

I decided that since I'm super impatient and can't work on a large project for too long, I would have to start making baby clothes. There are only so many grown up hats, scarves and mittens I can make before I stop actually wearing them and just get annoyed when they fill up my room. Either that, or I start making strange and pointless knitting garments, like "shrugs" that I will NEVER wear because they are hideous. Who actually wears "shrugs"?? It looks like you shrunk your sweater and still tried to wear it!! ... Ahem... Where was I? Oh yea, babies. The problem with knitting baby clothes is that I don't have a baby. But my coworkers do. In fact, my coworkers pretty much have babies every week. Their wives just keep popping them out. I don't know how they do it. They're not even Mormons. It doesn't really matter... in fact it just gives me a lot of people to knit for.
It's not perfect, but it's pretty close! I have a bad habit of using patterns and then deciding to deviate and do my own thing. That's when I screw up. In this case the top of the hood is weird, it's possible it won't be able to fit on the babies head! Oh well. It's decorative :)
This was my first full sweater, first attempt at attaching sleeves and first time using the Kitchener Stitch.

The pattern was from Knit Culture and was really fast and easy. I started Friday night and finished Sunday afternoon.
