I have a few friends having babies at the moment, so I made a couple lacy February Baby Sweaters for them. They are pretty quick knits. My sister really like them, so I cast on and made one for Leah in periwinkle, but made it a little longer so she could grow into it. Instead of making booties, I made her a little hat to go w/ the sweater. To top it off, I added these cute little daisy buttons.
Here's a picture of the finished product:
It's not the best picture (I will post a better one later once my sister sends it), but my sister put the outfit on Leah right away and texted me a picture of Leah in it. Here it is:
Not to leave Alex out, I had to make her a sweater too. Now, I recently got these books: Miss Bea's Playtime, Miss Bea's Colors, and Miss Bea's Dressing-Up (I love the sweater on this cover). I swear, these have got to be both the cutest and quickest knits out there for toddlers. Problem is, the patterns only go up to 4 years old and Alex is 3 1/2. I'll have to figure out a way to modify the patterns and make them bigger b/c they are just so darn cute.
Anyway, here's a picture of Alex's sweater:
Can you tell I was in a purple mood? Actually, purple is Alex's favorite color, so it works out great for her. Plus, it will be perfect for running around at school or at daycare. Her sweater is made in royal lilac w/ lime green stripes. I'll also post of picture of Alex wearing this. I first have to send it to them on Tuesday.
Both sweaters were knit in Crystal Palace Bunny Hop, which is an acrylic mix with 8% angora. It's machine washable, which is even better!
