thanks everyone!
i really enjoyed making the sweater - and i enjoy snuggling this little bundle!  Cheesy
EmilyFlew, I also like the sideways garter stitch...i think it wouldn't be too hard to change the pattern to fit an adult - it also comes in a cardigan.

So adorable, and I love the color.  It's so refreshing to see a baby NOT dressed in pink or blue!  Would you mind telling us what pattern you used?  I'd love to make one for my little one.  Thanks!

That yarn looks great! Your baby is precious--she obviously deserves her wonderful mom who knits her awesome sweaters. Smiley

thanks everyone!
Ana_Ng, the pattern is from Melanie Falick's Weekend Knitting (an all-around great book of beautiful patterns) and the sweater is called 'baby's pure & simple pullover and cardigan'...and i used a linen/cotton yarn that was on sale at my LYS. i personally do what i can to avoid the pink/blue segregation (i also have a son) but i still have so many pink things i have received as gifts. it's ridiculous - you can't even buy a bicycle that is not gender-specified!
