Sweater Fashion Show

March 15, 2011

Baby surprise jacket in Smoochy sock yarn.  Perfect for a new born to perhaps 3 months.  Easy to get on and off, nice to wear, definitely something good to make for future baby presents.  The butterfly buttons were a bad idea, they are pointy, and catch on the edge of the button holes.

Top down garter yoke cardigan.  Made with fashionable 3/4 length sleeves (I ran out of yarn!)  This is a great pattern (check Rav for the link) and is easy to get her into and out of.  I think it’s going to fit her awhile longer as it is wide.  The worsted weight yarn is so cute, and the colours matches a number of outfits, and spit-up is invisible on it.  A definite good one for a baby present.

This green outfit was a labour of love on my part, as it took a long time to knit.  However it does fit her, and I think it looks great.  The sweater is a bit difficult to get her into, which is not ideal, but once on it is comfy.  I haven’t wanted to tie the ribbons up yet, and will probably just take them out.  Althea likes to hold them and drool on them.  I am of the opinion that a baby looks cutest in a bonnet, and this one especially.  Its starting to get a bit small on her now, and is slipping off the back of her head in this photo.  I need to get some better shots of this ensemble before she outgrows it completely.

    Oh my goodness, each picture is cuter than the last!

    I will make a note of the butterfly button issue…

    How cute that she stuffs her wee fists in her mouth. Has she found her feet yet? LOVE THAT!

    Love the green one. I need to take a photo of Fionnuala in her bonnet before she grows out of it too.
