Notes: This little sweater is as adorable as I imagined, and I still can't figure out what to do with it. Keeping it for Henry is a long shot. He's 13 and when I proposed the idea he turned purple. I'm a natural pack rat, starting another "collection" is a dangerous path, not to mention I have plenty of stuff to get rid of the way it is.
Here is an idea: I'm going to let Baby B travel from one new baby to another, we'll share pictures on blogs and Ravelry, and see how many homes we can hit in one year. The sweater fits babies about six months old or younger. Depend on the weather, the baby will be able to wear it no more than a few times. It's pure wool and requires hand washing, so it may end up to be a put-it-on-for-a-cute-picture sweater. I'd love to see it being re-used from one knitter's home to another, instead of being stashed in my garage.
Now do you know a new baby?
Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, Tami's blog, and leave me a comment!
