A few years ago when i first started knitting I made a baby sweater. all went well except that the work was a little stretchy. being new, I was very careful to keep my tension even and to match the required gauge.
I haven't done any sweaters by hand in a while but I thought I would ask about that before I did. Some beautiful yarn was just given to me (sorry, the band was missing so that's all I can tell ya about other than it's got all the colors I love in it) and I thought I would knit myself a vest.
