The problem with knitting for the kids is that I tend to want them tucked in bed before my late night knitting time starts. So there I am at almost midnight with something that needs to be held up to a little body, and no little body to hold it up to. I've told my husband a couple of times that they can't go to bed yet because I'm going to need them soon. Luckily, Alex wasn't quite asleep yet when I slipped in to have her check the newly finished neckline of her pink sweater.

No it's done, it fits, Alex likes it, and I don't have to deal with it anymore except in the laundry. I'm very happy about that. It actually does look better on her than it did at 10:30 last night when I finished the seams and wove in the last of the ends. I don't think I'll be using Bernat Softee Chunky again unless there's a miracle and the stitches even out it goes through the wash. I'm blaming the lumpy-bumpy stockinette on the yarn because nothing else I've knit looks anywhere near this bad.

Bet she wants to wear it to the next knitting guild meeting. Or the LYS.
