 Procrastinators 'R Us

I knit this sweater as a gift for my cousin's son. Due to a felicitous combination of an easy, well-written pattern and chunky yarn, I finished the knitting in less than two weeks.

The buttons were another story. The assembled sweater sat in my WIP pile for an additional six weeks before I bestirred myself to dig up a sewing needle and sit down to sew on the buttons; a process which I was able to complete during the first half of last night's episode of Project Runway.

I am very glad that A) I knit it big and B) babies grow.
