Tail bone

Top 5 things that rock about baby sweaters?

5 - So many great free patterns to choose from. 

4. Getting to knit in colo(u)rs I would never use otherwise.
3. Babies are small, and the sweaters knit up so quickly.

2. Babies look cute in practically anything - even when your sweater isn't perfect.
1. The awesomeness of giving someone a gift to celebrate a little person. By far the best.

Oh dear. He looks a little like a dear caught in the headlights, doesn't he? Or maybe he's thinking: "Mom. Why did you put me in this pale yellow sweater?! I'm a BOY."

Well, sorry Jacob darling... But when I made this sweater I didn't know you were going to be male! But here is your baby sweater anyways. But now that my nephew is a little over 2 months old (and big for his age) he fits into it quite well.

This is the sweater pattern I used.
... Honestly, I'd never use this pattern again. Too much sewing. And I didn't like the sleeves or the collar in general. And, seriously, when it's not on a baby as cute as him, the sweater looks pretty horrid. Luckily for me, Jacob can pull it off.

And Jacob? I promise the next sweater will be more manly. (maybe.)

Stripes stripes stripes

It's been awhile. I know. But I'm done another knitting project! For now, this is all I can show y'all. 

The stripes didn't exactly turn out how I thought they would when I bought the yarn, but that's okay. It still made a super cute sweater. Or at least I think so.
