Crossover Jacket


Ta da! I knit my first baby crossover jacket last week. The pattern is from the wonderful book, Vintage Knits for Modern Babies, a gift from a thoughtful friend. I added the pink crochet edging on the sleeves and went with matching pink buttons.


The jacket fits my four-month-old niece Lily perfectly.



Who, by the way, has started smiling and laughing.

My heart is melting.

Lily is getting so big! She looks so wonderful in the jacket. I know you are having the best time with her Stacy, my heart would melt too.
I'm glad you had a chance to see all the sandhill cranes. I am on mission to paint all the different species of birds in SC!xx

Well you just have the perfect model for your perfect little knits! I actually finished my vest from a year (or 2?) ago! And I cast on for a little boy sweater for my neighbor. I love baby knits - so fast!
