I'm not going to be soppy about all the things I'm thankful for (today is Thanksgiving here in Canada) even though I am thankful for a lot of very soppy things.  Instead I'm going to show you pictures of the baby sweater which is


and I strongly suspect has a baby to put it onto already though I have seen only signs (for example absence of said baby's expectant mother from her usual haunts) of same.

I am so thankful. 

If you look really closely you can just make out the purple blanket stitch I did along one button band, where the colour changes were messy.

I checked with Louise, who made the purple yarn.  She says machine wash gentle, lay flat to dry, so all I need to do now is make a care tag and, with luck, go hold a baby.

Project details here, highlights here:
Merino wool and seasilk blend yarn
Vintage Patons pattern adapted for stripes
Untold amounts of chocolate for fuel
