I made this sweater for our friends Lisa and Jesse who are expecting a baby girl in a couple of weeks.
I bought the yarn and buttons at Purl Soho and used their baby girl fair isle cardigan pattern.
While the sweater was blocking Mike got busy and designed a card. He printed out a bunch of different color combos to see which one matched the sweater the best.
We didn't have any wrapping paper but the roll of paper we've been using to cover the floors during construction was the perfect shade of pink.
We used it to wrap the gift.
(Jesse is a Red Sox fan so we made a little pink Boston "B" - for baby - to seal the tissue paper).
We also used the pink paper to fold up an envelope for the card. I sewed one of the extra buttons from the sweater onto the card to tie the whole thing together.
I hope the sweet new baby enjoys wearing her sweater as much as I enjoyed making it.
Baby Ella is here!!!!! Her wonderful parents sent me this photo of the beautiful baby wearing her sweater. Could this baby be any cuter?
