Im a college student that has zero use for a knitted baby sweater.

BUT my good friend is pregnant and a few weeks ago, I learned she was having a boy.  It was go time.  I cast on for this knitted baby sweater that night and finished it the next day.  I cant get over how cute it is. It's a quick knit that only took one day and I like the fact that the project took less than one skein of yarn.  I'm discovering how much fun it is to make baby things and feel like it could be a dangerous new addiction, ha.

I gave the baby sweater to my friend yesterday and she absolutely loved it.  Might have to make more of these.  Smiley

Thanks!  I used Vanna's Choice yarn in Sapphire Blue.  I purposely used a bold color because I didn't want to make another pastel item for babies, ha.  Just something about them in rich colors make 'em look so cute! Smiley

JJGirl, awesome Baby Sophisticate!! I LOVE the color (big fan of jewel colors)!

This sweater is awesome as it fits both genders, is an easy pattern and is super quick!! I also liked the buttons you use...they contrast very nicely with the Sapphire Blue!  Great minds do think alike!  Grin
