Granny Square Baby Sweater Update:

I'm still working on the granny square baby sweater and I'm looking forward for this project to be over.  I worked on the sweater for a little bit yesterday afternoon and last night and stayed up working until 11:30pm.  I was so tired yesterday when I went to bed, but I think that I was on a roll sewing together all of those squares (38 in total).  I love crocheting the granny squares, but I hate the putting together process.  There are many ways of putting the squares together.  I chose to sew mine together.  Next time I want to try crocheting the squares together to see if it is easier and faster.  This is the first time I have ever made a granny square baby sweater and it is a lot of work.  I did not have anyone in mind in my family when I decided to make the sweater because no one is having a baby girl, but I wanted to challenge myself to make something different and more difficult than I usually do and I'm glad I did.  It is good to challenge yourself!  My mom had given me the yarn a long time ago because she said that she wasn't going to use it and I said that I would take the yarn because I love the color.  When she gave me the yarn I did not realize at the time that the yarn is from England and it is so soft.  The yarn is Sadar  Snuggly Magic.  Well I just love the name of the yarn.  I just have a little bit more left to do and I will be finished with the sweater.  I wish I had enough yarn to make a blanket but I do not but I can always buy more yarn to make the blanket at some point.

Here is a picture of my progress on the sweater:
