Baby It's Cold Outside



And what would keep a baby warm?  Why a cardigan of course.  Not just any old cardigan but the good old standby of Elizabeth Zimmermann's creation-February Baby Sweater!  I decided to do a gray yarn because the recipient loves neutral shades.


I decided to eliminate the lace pattern so the two shades would be the main focus of the sweater.  I also could not resist adding a touch of flare with the red buttons.  The details of this sweater can be found on my Ravelry page.

Tracey over at Clover is hosting a little baby shower for Amanda from the habit of being.  Hop on over to Clover to see all the lovely gifts for this very special baby to be :)

  3. What a sweet pattern - I love the changes you made and the little dental work where the two colors meet. What wonderful colors and the pop of red buttons is a nice touch.

  9. This is the most precious little thing!! The red buttons truly make the sweater--perfect touch.
    (Oops--didn't know about the neutral color thing for Amanda--problems with being a newbie! Mine is sort of in-your-face preppy! Might brighten up a dark day???? :) )
