babies and puppies

I finished the sweater for Baby K last weekend.

We don't know the gender, so I went with a nice gender neutral brown color. (Thanks for the inspiration, PumpkinMama!)

The sweater closes with three buttons on top.

Three very cute puppy dog buttons! (The K family has a much-loved dog, who joined the family before the birth of their first baby, now 2 1/2. They'll dig the puppies.)

  • Oh, so cute. I'm going to come right out and say that I'd love a sweater like that, and I am nowhere near infant aged.

  • Oh that is so cute, cute, cute!

  • So cute! I love that you went with brown for an unknown sex baby rather than a more "traditional" baby color. I know that I would reach for a brown sweater for Kaya ten times before a mint green one!

    I'm sure they will LOVE this sweater!

  • It's adorable! I love brown on babies. When my daughter was a baby, the sweater I loved most on her was a beautiful brown one. Hmmm, I think Clover needs a brown sweater for next winter.
