One sweater down...

...A million more to go! As some of you suspected, I got right to making sweaters and blankets for our sweet baby just as soon as we found out we were having a HE! I've been sitting on this pattern for awhile now, and could hardly put it down once I started, cause I was so excited to see the finished product.


Voila!
This baby sweater making thing is addicting! I fear this poor baby will have nothing but sweaters to wear! I didn't have 4 matching buttons, so I went for the assortment instead. Wasn't sure if I was going to keep the random buttons, but after some sweet words of encouragement from some beautiful friends...I think I just might!

I've also started on the absolutely most soft, amazing baby blanket there could ever be! The name of this yarn is Heaven, and let me tell you, it has been quite the pleasure knitting this yummy square of goodness...


You can't really tell from the picture, but the yarn is a really soft minty blueish green. I'm in love...I may even make one for myself ;) ha.

So that's what I've been up to! Anyone else have any fun projects you're working on?
Happy Tuesday!

Oh Jilly. The sweater is just darling. I love the mismatched buttons. Can he please wear baby saddle shoes with this? Or lil baby wingtips?
