Well.......at least I think its cute.  I'd be interested in knowing what you all think.  It got rave reviews at the baby shower of a coworker last weekend.  But then again, I've never been to a shower where people pronounce things as being crap.

Here is the pattern

Okay...here it is....



The sleeves are folded back a little.  I really liked this pattern.  It was a very quick project.  Great for a shower.

That is so sweet.  I love the colors, and it looks so soft and comfy.  I would love to see the cuter baby modeling it!!!!

That is really lovely and sweet. I too would love to see the cuter baby you mentioned modeling it. That is a wonderful shower gift. How long did it take for you to make it?

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

Thanks for the compliments.  The yarn I used was Bernat's baby coordinates sweet stripes in splash stripes colourway.  I prefer to work with natural fibers but for a baby item I think this acrylic blend is okay.

I really have to get a shot of baby Margaret in the sweater.  She is just the cutest little thing, but the little stinker didn't wake up at all during her big debut!

Any baby item that is not the standard fluffy pink, soft blue or pastel yellow gets my vote.  Yes, the classics have their place, but I love the unconventional, and those colors you picked are really great! Grin

Oh, I agree!  That being said, I am currently working on a soft blue sweater for a baby  Undecided...though the style isn't really traditional.  The pattern is the baby baseball tee from knit 2 together.  I am loving this book!!

If you want any pointers....I might be able to help...expert crocheter that I am  (insert sarcastic snort here).  But preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'seriously...potentially...I') could help...I didn't find it too confusing....except the yoke bit.  Yoke?  Is that the right word?
