Obsessed

O.K. so once I hatched the idea to change up another baby sweater, I HAD to make it immediately. Here's the original pattern. Not very "boy". So change the color to blue and the motif to hearts (four of them around the bottom - two on front and two on back) like this:
And it should yield a cute sweater. Only one problem. I've been working on this since yesterday. Charting hearts, swatching, and then creating the sweater. The gauge swatch lies. BIG TIME. Am I going to rip it out? Heck no! The baby just won't be able to wear it for a while. The chest is 25 inches!
.
Does anyone out there have a chart that gives chest measurements with approximate ages? I've searched the net to no avail. I'd like to know what age this sucker is going to fit!
.
Off to start the lace part of the pattern. With luck my obsession should yield a finished sweater by the end of the day.

Can't wait to see what you've changed it up to - the hearts and blue are great!

The very fact that you're posting on the obsession at 6 in the morning says something!

It's very cute! I'm impressed!
