Baby Sweater in Less Than a Week

One side effect of having hours cut, and, even with two part times job, only working 23 hours a week is that I have lots of knitting time.  As a result:
I cast on last Monday evening, June 27, and by Sunday July 3, I cast off.  The pattern is a downsized version of Cottage Creations Wonderful Wallaby.  I have sized it down for about a 12-18 month size, and it takes about 1 1/2 skeins of Plymouth Encore.  I like using a washable wool blend for babies, especially when it is being gifted to a non-spinner.
When it is hot and humid, it is nice being able to have a small, quick project.
And, since it did cool some, I was also able to finish both fronts and get about a third of the first sleeve done on Betty's jacket.
