kellilee, your sweetpea cardigan is sooooo cute! 

diosaperdida, thanks!!

spacecase, are you making the whole thing with the pretty pink? or are you going to mix in some other colors?

spacecase, are you making the whole thing with the pretty pink? or are you going to mix in some other colors? 

When I thought I wasn't going to have enough yarn of the same dyelot to make the whole thing, I toyed with the idea of picking a couple shades of pink to match and making a few solid squares to mix in for a more patchwork-y look. It's still an option I'm considering. Strangely enough, with Red Heart, I often have trouble finding solids that are dyed to match their ombres. Don't know why  Huh

What is the age range on this book? I have a 3 yr old but she is tiny and she has a big sister on her dad's side who will be six but she is also petite.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

the patterns are for babies and toddlers. most  of them can go up to a 3 yo, but not much more than that.

I just finished a second Candi Jensen baby cardi: Wrap Star from Candy Babies.  It was gifted to a co-worker at a baby shower on Friday and I got this as a response: "You knit?"  After explaining that the sweater was CROCHETED, I politely responded: "Yup."

The Wrap Star is crocheted with a F crochet hook and 4 balls of pink Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (two more balls than were called for in the pattern - I think this was a printing error and I'm fortunate that the fiber gods were looking down on me since I found two more balls in the same dyelot).  I especially like the picot edging around the neckline and the three little buttons.

Your little wrap sweater is so lovely! Thanks for the heads up about the yarn amounts: that pattern is on my list.

I also did the Wrap Star sweater and matching dress (Summer Love) from the Candy Babies book
Honestly, kellilee, I am NOT stalking you!  Cheesy
and like kellilee, found that I needed 7 skeins rather than the 5 called for for both pieces.

Here's mine:

OK, I am a lurker here in the crochet forums.  These baby and toddler things are gorgeous!  (And it's funny about the lawyers kellilee)  My best friend is in the process of adopting her brother's two children (horrible story), one of whom is a just turned two year old girl.  I am trying to crochet her a hat for XMas.  Yeah, trying is the word.  But you all inspire me!
