Thank you for your well wishes on Baby Jane! Baby Jane got another sweater last week.
Pattern: raglan sleeve easy baby sweater (pattern here but I just went there and it seems to be a reported attack site now? so maybe enter at your own risk, yikes!; see mods on my ravelry page)
Yarn: less than one skein berroco comfort in brown
Baby Jane's pile of handmades is getting larger. I didn't craft too much for Lills as a baby especially because I had never attempted any crochet projects or a non rectangle knitted project, so I think I have every right to go baby crazy now.
Jenni: Gregg, what do you think of Jane's new sweater? (jumping up and down!)
Gregg: another sweater? really? You know she will be here in August right? It is really hot in August.
Jenni: But this one has short sleeves. Besides they all won't fit right away, some are for the fall. Plus, babies in sweaters = CUTE!
Gregg: well maybe you should stop now.
Jenni: too late...look how cute this next one is going to be!!!
So I keep going back and forth on the best way to sew buttons on a knitted or crochet project. I was trying to use the same yarn I knitted with but sometimes that is too think to get through the buttonholes more than once so lately I have been using embroidery floss that matches the buttons or project, what do you use?
Button shopping for this new blue sweater will have to wait though because Lilly and I are off to California on Monday! Yay! my sister! Disneyland! old friends! jiggity jig!
