Why do they call it a 5 hr baby sweater?

I've never been able to finish one in 5 hrs and I consider myself to be a pretty fast knitter. Anyways, sewed on the buttons and snaps last night. I'm going to have to get bigger snaps but that'll be a weekend project.

Plugging along on my socks. Notice how matched they are? The foot goes pretty fast so these should be done this weekend if all goes well.
I'll be looking for a fall dishcloth pattern to knit for the dishcloth exchange and hitting RAVELRY for a sweater idea for W and N. I'll see how the jumper washes and if it holds up well I use cotton ease for the boy's sweaters. Their mom is a no fuss mom so she's requested a no wool for kids clothing rule to be instituted. Superwash wool socks are fine. Superwash wool sweaters are not. Go figure.

Wow! You are moving right along with those socks!

Love the color. They remind me of chili peppers.

I can barely knit a hat in 5 hours.

Your baby sweater is so beautiful - I love the color, and the matching hat is so cute too! And your socks - woah, they look awesome in this colorway! You're sure doing some beautiful knitting there, I'm impressed!

See, your smart, you do two socks at once. Me? I knit one and now I have about 6 old maids hanging around mooning.

I think the baby sweater and hat are adorable, and the color is perfect. And don't feel bad. I would never be able to knit that in five hours either. I couldn't sit still that long. LOL

The socks are looking great too. Nice job of matching them lady.

Have a great day. :)
