It must feel sooo satisfying to knit for a baby.  It's helpful and fun to see the adorable lil' recipient wearing your creation!

i can't take credit for the little cherub - he's my boyfriend's cousin's baby.  but it's hard for anything on him to not look cute! 

i'm actually torn about baby knits - they grow out of everything so quickly!  this sweater will fit baby ethan for approximately three weeks, i think.  but the knits themselves are relatively quick, so it's a bit less of a time investment i suppose.

So adorable!  Ethan sure is a cutie as well!

I know what you mean about baby knits, the grow out of them so fast!  The few pieces I have created for my daughter will be saved to hopefully be passed along to her daughter someday.  One thing I did consider though.... once they out grow the item frog the yarn and start making an afghan from all the yarn.  You could make a really nice piece for them to take away to college or even gift as an heirloom piece at their wedding.  Would be kind of fun to look back at the crazy afghan and say you wore that as a hat!  Have the pictures to prove it to them as well.
