Sock Yarn Baby Sweater

Here is the front and back view of the size 3-6 months baby sweater I made with Patons Kroy Sock yarn and Fortissima Socka self striping yarn. We didn't have any dark blue buttons at the store that I liked, so I went with the red buttons. I hummed and hawed after I put them on, checked my own button stash, but decided that these were better than anything I had. If I make another one I think I will only put three buttons on it for closure. This pattern called for four, so that's what I did. This was my first use of the self striping yarn, and I must say that I liked it. I have enough leftover to either do another sweater or make a pair of toddler socks, I'm undecided.

This is my pre-felted bucket hat that I made from a pattern I got from Nova Knitter. It's a really quick knit - big, too, of course. It fits all the way down over my head and sits on my shoulders! I should have seen if I have a self portrait on my camera. I am making a pair of mittens to match, so I will felt them together and post a picture when they are finished.

And lastly here is a picture of the poor little guy after we got home from the hospital. We went to playgroup today, and the doctor that glued his cut was there with her baby boy. There was also another doctor there with her little girl. I asked what they thought about the blood under the tape, but as long as it's dry (which it is now) it isn't a problem. It sure makes his wound stand out, though. Everyone sees it and asks what happened. (Those dark flecks around his mouth are from sour cream and onion potato chips!)

Sheri the sweater looks amazing!! You must be pleased with it. Now I want to do another one for little David who is not so little now. Quite the growing boy!! FYI the sweater fit Paul and he says he loves it. Maybe he is being polite, but Shan definitely loved it.
Having fun up here in Ottawa. Home Monday.
