The good news is, we will be visiting Peru next month, and my mother-in-law is going to meet us there, so if I finish a baby sweater in time, I can give it to her to pass along. Which of these seems like I might be able to finish it in two weeks?
I'll be knitting a 6 month size, since that's about when the weather will turn cold in Santiago. I'm thinking Baby Sophisticate looks simplest, but is it too boring? And more importantly, do I have yarn for any of these sweaters? I guess I'll have to answer that question myself.
(As a side note, I fully understand that children born in Spanish-speaking countries will, obviously, speak Spanish. It is just as normal, run-of-the-mill, everyday as the fact that I was born in the U.S. and therefore speak English. But as someone who learned Spanish as a foreign language, part of me still finds it astounding when small children speak it--like they're little linguistics geniuses tottering around speaking in tongues.)
