Instead of making booties, I think I will make thumbless mittens on an I-cord string, which can be threaded through the sleeves. I have the perfect gauge swatch in the sweater, but I have till January to finish the whole project. Here is the Mom-to-be and the Grandma-to-be!
I attended the baby shower on Saturday for Erin and I have never seen so many cute outfits for boys. I hope that this gift doesn't get buried in the stash and forgotton, only to be found after he outgrows it!
This is the cutest centerpiece idea. It looked like a wedding cake, but was made of 3 hat boxes, Pampers around the outside, secured by ribbon. There was the cutest monkey on top and knitted (made in China, of course) finger puppets tucked in all around.
