Baby Knits

Today’s post has nothing, I repeat, nothing to do with Hannah. If I talked about her again I was going to have consider changing the name of this blog to Hannah Knits. Except that she doesn’t. Knit, that is. But I do and today I even have proof.

A finished baby sweater.


The pattern is The Babies Neck Down Cardigan #982 from Knitting Pure and Simple.


The yarn is Cascade 220 Heathers.


The buttons are sheep. And they really couldn’t be any cuter.

It’s now winging it’s way to my friend, who is due in just a few weeks. I can’t tell you who she is because she reads this blog and I want her to be surprised. Although, I think this pregnancy surprised her to the point that she may never be truly surprised again.

That, my friends, is a gigantic hint.

  1. the tiniest details on a simple baby sweater just really make it something special, don’t they? The sweet crisp fall air this morning made me hug my alpaca/wool yarn… can’t wait to start my Rhinebeck sweater. 😉

  2. Adorable sweater; the buttons really make it! I have the same buttons; I bought them years ago with no project in mind, but now I think I’m going to have to copy you 🙂

  3. Ooo, I know, I know! (I just read Margene). Darling sweater, and thanks for reminding me that I have a bunch of those buttons waiting for a sweater to go on!

  4. What an adorable button!! The sheepy buttons are just a great addition to a beautiful sweater. My son was a surprise for me when I got pregnant with him. My husband kept telling me I was going to get pregnant, I didn’t believe him..and lo and behold..I got pregnant. My husband really wanted another baby. LOL.

  5. What a cute sweater! I bought that pattern recently for my pattern stash. It’s nice to see it knit up in such a pretty color, with those darling buttons. Very nice!

  6. now that’s sweet – such adorable buttons.
    hmmm… wonder who it’s for ! thank god I’m past that (not that there is anything wrong with babies… I’ve just done that part of life.)
