Our daughter is expecting our first grandchild...a little grand daughter to cuddle and to love! We are so very excited. She should make her appearance at the beginning of september.

I have been looking at baby knitting patterns for the past few months and as soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to make it!
The pattern was in the October 2007 Canadian Living magazine. It's also available in a book called Natural Knits for Babies and Moms (Interweave 2006)

The yarn I chose is a blend of merino, silk and cashmere called Sublime, in a very soft shade of pink.
I loved knitting it and hated to sew it up together!
I modified a hat pattern that I had to get it to match the little sweater. It was the first time I did a picot edge and it's really easy and so cute!

I found lovely pink buttons in the same shade in my mother's button box the morning of the baby shower! But it was finished in time.

Our daughter just loves it!


  1. ok... when I see cute knitwear for babies, it brings out my maternal side. My fiance tells me "one step at a time". lol

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous!! I love it! Items like these become heirlooms to pass down to the next generation! Fabulous work!
