I'm not sure when I started this one, but I ordered the yarn back in November. It definitely took awhile. I've been feeling the pressure this last month or so because I'm really worried it won't fit him in the fall and it's already so warm here. Just in time for St Patrick's Day, but the weather is in the mid-70s or higher. I love this yarn. Not so much the color, but that was Tim's pick. I'm glad for younger siblings that this can be handed down to after he's worn it only twice before he out grows. Maybe this summer he won't grow very much?
