Baby Project Update

While I have been doing quite a bit of stitching lately, I've been trying not to forget that I have a baby gift to finish for August 2nd.  With this being the end of June, that means I've got about a month to get it finished.  Here is my progress to date:

I'm almost to the point where I will be casting off for the arm hole stitches on the other side of the sweater.  From there it will be a little bit more of the honeycomb stitch and then time to start the decreases for the other tie and figure out how to do the sleeves. 

Here is a close up of the honeycomb stitch which is made using alternating knit and slip stitches on the wrong side and then knitting all stitches on the front.  I really like how it looks.  I hope the mama does too!

I'm off to do a bit more on this project while I wait for company to arrive for the weekend. The temperature has heated back up so I think there will be some beach time in my weekend plans.  Hope you're enjoying great weather too!
