Baby Kimono

I just finished a Baby Kimono from Mason-Dixon. My first sweater (after 3 years of knitting!). I knit it in Peaches N Creme. I added the crochet edge for some contrast (it was boring in just blue!). I have a hard time with ribbons on a boy for the closure so I sewed in some Velcro and then added a nice little football button for decoration. I need to make another for another baby in November and I think I'll try stockinette rather than garter stitch. It was a quick and easy project if anyone is looking for one!

New use for mini sweaters

I got a call from Steph this morning. I had given this sweater to her youngest daughter to dress one of her teddies. Steph just wanted to let me know that her daughter is using the sweater as a large water bottle cozy! Too funny! Now she wants Steph to get cracking and make her some sweaters and some for her friends, too. HA! Just wish I had a picture of it in use. I want to know what shape those water bottles are. Steph, if you see this, can you post a picture? Thanks!
