Baby Sweater for my Brother

AndrewNiehus's picture

My brother and his wife are having a kid in June...well maybe July, I am not quite sure. This is their first, and they are freaking out. Here is the first of the many things I will be making for them. I hate the yarn, I hate the buttons, and I hate the color, but the women that I have shown it to think it is adorable.

Pattern: Baby Placket Pullover
Yarn: Cotton Kisses by Plymouth Yarn

Sounds like you went with the best color you could. I imagine they wouldn't go for yellow/purple if they didn't want a blue one. Some nice knitting, regardless. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
