I picked this pattern in a previous life: way back when little man was in utero and my body measurements were in constant flux.
I figured if I finished the sweater quickly I could still wear it with a big belly. If it only got finished later, it would be breastfeeding friendly.
What they don’t tell you beforehand of course, is that babies -like cats- are born with tiny, razor-sharp claws and a penchant for scratching. and pulling. and biting. and general (discovery through) destruction.
I think this sweater will have to live in a closet for a while. At least until such time as my clothing has ceased to double as a plaything/napkin.
