I decided right after I finished up Morgan's last sweater, that I needed to make one for Rowan. Alas, the tiger sweater I knitted him when he was 2 is now entirely, officially too small.
Rowan: I want to wear my sweater!
Me: Honey, this sweater is too small for you.
R: It is? My tiger one?
M: Yeah, its just too little.
R: Will you knit me a new one?
At this point you have to imagine a winsome 3 1/2 year old boy doing "the cute trick" that Dot Warner was so famous for.
Me: Oh god! Not the eyes! They're too cute! Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!!!!
(Okay, that didn't happen.)
Me: What kind of sweater do you want?
Rowan: A BIG one!
I decided that he needed a Weasley sweater after I noticed how much like Ron Weasley he looked in a photo I took of him and his sister.

Soooo....... On Friday, April 8 I cast on the back. At 2:00 a.m. on Saturday the 16th I bound off the neck. (Too tight, I might add. I fixed it after I got some sleep.) The point is, folks, I made an entire sweater in just over a week. 8 days. A sweater.
And here it is:
