2008 - FO No. 42



Pattern: Embroidered Raglan Sweater from Baby Bloom by Erika Knight.

Size: 3 (9-12 mths)

Yarn: Cotton Ease - 2.5 blue, 1 mint

Started: 23rd Oct - 28th Oct 2008

Hat: Beanie Hat (up to 12 mth size)

from Natural Knits for Babies & Moms

Yarn: Cotton Ease, blue and mint

I have a little stash of Cotton Ease and it has been sitting in there for quite a while now. These 2 colors are the ones that I used to knit Isabelle the Monica top. I really like this color combo together and I think it will be quite sweet for a little boy, although I could put it on a little girl too. The buttons I used are from stash, a bag I bought from Spotlight last year with a mix of bright buttons in all different shapes and sizes. I thought the apple ones were so cute and nearly match the colors. This little set goes well together and I have cast on another in a dark khaki and blue combo. Photos hopefully in the next 2 weeks, depends on how my knitting goes.
