5 Hour Baby Sweater for Bean

I finished the second sleeve yesterday, I need to pick up some buttons this morning. Bean is only 8 months old and this sweater looks huge to me. The chest is 22" and the sleeves and body are about 7". I'll see how it fits Thanksgiving Day. Maybe he'll be able to wear it to preschool.

I have another full skein and I plan to get matching hat and booties done before Thanksgiving. The weather has finally turned and Bean needs warm nose and toes!

The sweater turned out nice! I just measured Will (12 months) and his chest is 19.75" and his arms from the shoulders are 8.5" (So is from his shoulder to his tummy), so it seems like it should fit Bean now!

Thanks for measuring Will, Becky. You've given me hope that Bean won't be swimming in the sweater. When I see him next, I'll be armed with a tape measure so I don't have to guess again!

Love the sweater. I think Becky is right, those baby things look big until you try them on, but they grow so fast it's amazing.

Have a happy thanksgiving.
