Blue Baby Sweater

Blue Baby Sweater

February 26, 2004

Pattern: Debbie Bliss Quick Baby Knits, p. 32
Yarn: 100% cotton, Bernat Handicrafters (or something like that)

COST: Cheap. Maybe $6 worth of eBay yarn and a button.

I love this pattern and the sweater came out cuter than hell, but heavy and stiff in my opinion, and I'm not sure I would use the same yarn again. I think that yarn is really intended for something like dishcloths! However, this gift to an attorney for his new baby boy was apparently very much appreciated, and when I showed it to another attorney, her words were, "It looks like a Baby J Crew sweater!" Pretty high praise for my second-ever baby sweater. The recipient told me in a note that his baby wore this sweater to his first doctor's appointment and received lots of compliments.
