welcome to the world...


My little nephew Matthew Ben made his grand appearance today. I finished his sweater just in time. Well, I probably had a little time to spare since I made the 6 mo. size-- big enough to grow into.

I had a lot of fun with the extra little details: the twill tape tag with his initials and the content and care hang tag.

Seriously though, people, I think I'm going to need to join an addiction treatment program or something. I've got another baby sweater in the wings (so cute that it's physically painful), and more planned. I just can't stop myself. My sincerest apologies to any non-knitters who are getting sick of all this.

P.S. The pattern is Presto Chango by Valerie Wallis

Beautiful sweater! I love the detail and only hope I can be that good with anything beyond S/S or garter stitch! Keep blogging and sharing!
