I just finished this baby bunting, using the Angel's Nest pattern from Ravelry. I decided to knit the whole thing in stripes. It's such a fast knit, that I've started another one.

You'll enjoy knitting it. It's mostly knit in one piece instead of so much seaming.

That is just adorable, you did a great job.

But could I make a suggestion...... It looks like there is a cord at the bottom, if this is a cord through a casing you might want to consider substituting elastic for the cord.

I am a nurse and an EMT and a few years back we had a baby brought in to the ER who strangled itself on the tie cord of a sleeper while sleeping.

It's one of my soap boxes. Last year when I started knitting for my grandbaby I was really amazed to see so many patterns that incorporated ties. If you notice in stores, the baby clothes now use elastic at the bottom of sleepers and buntings.

Ginny - thank you for posting that info on elastic....truthfully, it is not something I would have thought of! I guess my baby years are well past me now :)
