Making Lemonade Out of a Lemon Week....

*

I knitted Belinda a baby sweater for her upcoming baby. (I'm still working on the baby blanket---getting ready to cast-off and then do a hand-crocheted trim).

Hope the sweater fits....

I know, I know, it's weird colors, but remember what I told you---I never knit anything but psychedelic stuff....

(I'm working on a camouflage sweater for Jane-Anne's baby since she said camouflage would "be cool"....)

That sweater is gorgeous! I love the pinky purples and purpley pinks and the touches of pretty sage green. You could knit me a sweater like that. Really. I wouldn’t say no. Really.

That's such a cute jacket - and the colours aren't weird! Mind you, I got raised eyebrows in the local yarn store this week when I said I wanted to knit a blck hoodie for my brother's soon-to-be born baby. :o)

Uh, what weird colors? Looks bright and happy to me! Perfect for a baby. Nice to see good strong colors with pink.

I think that it's beautiful and would have quite happily put it on my babies... even the boys (not really. You're very clever. Bo ;0)

Cute little sweater! And great colors. I have a friend who thinks babies look best in red, but this sweater might be even better. Looks like a quick, relaxing knit, too.

There you go again, knitting these precious baby sweaters cuter than any patterns I ever find! I'm going to be a copy cat with twins on the way in our family (much awaited, much desired, much time w/fertility specialists). Good strong colors with some character. None of that fluff stuff. Sweaters a baby would be proud to own. Yes, you do very well for the babies of the world. You give them a voice, something that says "I AM HERE." What baby wouldn't be proud to not be lost in the pastel world? I'm going to get my screaming colors right now! Uh, loved the lacy bottom...
