baby knit cuteness

The baby knits are almost all finished--this first one is for a shower I'm going to this weekend. The buttons are really one color, a very light blue, but the picture makes them look different. I'm looking forward to giving this to the mom-to-be!

This is Cindy Walker's Simply Knit Baby Sweater pattern without the stripes. Instead, I put embroidered swirls on it. Last night at Raleigh Knit Night I thought I was finished completely with this one until Agent Gray made me put one more swirl on the back........

............which was a great idea. I think it's my favorite part of the sweater! The unfinished part of this gift is a hat to match, which I'll probably finish tonight, and may get to deliver the gift this weekend.

The last baby gift is the star blanket, which will be mailed off today.

The blanket yarn is one of those enormous skeins of soft acrylic from Lion Brand. Not my favorite to work with, but a good workhorse yarn for this blanket.

I LOVE the sweaters. The green sleeves are perfect. Hmmm....good name for a song.
The sweater with the swirls is wonderful. Do they have grandma sizes like that??
