If the child wants to stretch his or her legs, however, it is long enough to accommodate that for an average newborn...which is a good thing I suppose.
Better too big than too small, yes?
Also, I am certain that there are some mistakes in it, which is to be expected when one has been driven crazy by the business of the present giving season.
Regardless, I am very happy with it and excited that I now have a rather unique gift to give people who have little ones on the way. I learned a few new stitches/cast-ons/seam methods with this project, and that is always good.
Carry on, people, carry on..
