Nine Months in the Making...

And no I didn't just have a baby, that would be a miracle 3 weeks after a hysterectomy! What I did do was finish this adorable sweater, hat and bootie set for my cousins beautiful baby girl. It is kind of ironic I finished it on her 9 month birthday!

The Hat

I designed the hat myself and it turned out pretty cute. The first go was umm well, lets just say I have a new hat!

The Mary Jane Skimmers

These adorable Mary Jane Skimmers were crocheted using a pattern by Sylver Designs.

The Seamless Kimono Sweater

I discovered this pattern right after my cousin requested that I knit a sweater for her baby while she was still pregnant. I worked on it for a long time but with 4 kids I kept having to put it down. I am so glad I finally get to send it out to her today!!

The Complete Set

And while I am exited to finally mail it, I will miss looking at it adoringly. I just hope I get a ton of adorable pictures of the sweet baby girl in it, that will make up for not having it here to look at. After all it will be much cuter with her smiling grin!
