Sweater Needs Work

I got hot off the press pictures of my new nephew today, on his 6 month birthday, modeling the sweater I made for him. It's too big, but that's okay. It's proportionally correct, and that's good.

But I was rightly concerned about a simple design issue -- the looseness of the knit. I didn't want it to be too hot as he lives in TX. This was made with a single strand of worsted weight yarn e-wrapped on a large gauge loom. But it's too easy for those little fingers to get caught! Next up, a tighter stitch pattern, and smaller pieces. It's a good thing I've got lots of baby blue yarn!
