Cutest baby stuff

Man, I love knitting baby items. They take no time & they are SO freaking cute.

February Baby Sweater for my sister's sister in law (got that?) I took this to Target & put it up against other clothes to figure out what size it came out. It seems to be a 6-9 month sweater, which will need to be short sleeved for a Louisiana baby in August to November. I love these buttons:

This is the Baby Kimono out of Mason-Dixon Knitting. I have no idea why they didn't include button holes (or why I didn't think of it in the middle of the project) because that would have been SO much easier than sewing ribbon. Bleech. I have had the knitting done for 3 months but just got around to sewing that ribbon. As a matter of fact, this was for a baby that has since outgrown it so it's going to Patrick's nephew's baby Logan who was born the end of January. It really is cute & I'd knit it again in a second.

I have a few more baby things on my list but haven't started any yet so this will have to do for now. I hope the mommies love them!

Beautiful job on both of those little sweaters. I love those buttons on the Feb sweater.

FYI - I made the MDK kimono using the yarn over option, and that's what I used for the button holes. You can see a pic on my blog or on Ravelry.
