Spent the weekend in upstate NY visiting my new itty bitty niece.
Thanks for all the advice and kind words about the baby sweater yarn trauma. I’m way behind on everything, so I’m truly sorry if I didn’t get to responding to your comment. It’s not because I don’t love you.
I’ve ordered another skein of the yarn, and will wait and see if the color matches up well enough. Some of you suggested just changing colors completely, which I would totally do on most sweaters. But the semi-solid yarn and the lace pattern on this one are so lovely together, I don’t want to complicate it with stripes or a color change.
I mean, she deserves the bestest little sweater I can give her, right?
In the meantime, she can grow into her BSJ and her new sun suit.

Mods? I made my own coordinating bias tape for the legs, instead of using store-bought.
I loved making this! The patterns were both pretty simple, although I have no idea how real sewers get elastic drawn through the wee channels where it belongs. I ended up applying some ghetto technology to a knitting tool:
And just one more gratuitous baby shot before I go.
