Lucy's first sweater

I knit this wrap-around sweater for my little girl while she slept under the bili lights in the NICU nursery. She was a tiny girl, only four pounds ten ounces at birth. She was swimming in the hospital sweaters and needed something preemie-sized for her week-and-a-half stay in the nursery.

Here is the preemie sweater compared to the one I worked on next (that she has long since outgrown.) I also knit her a hat to keep the chills at bay in the hospital.
