Here's a slew of FOs that I knit for my DD last year. The green cardigan was my first sweater ever. Before I knit that, I made her a pink hearts blanket. I didn't include the blanket since it now has holes in it! Also, the ripple blanket and coral cardigan were gifts for a fellow math teacher.

Isn't baby stuff fun?! My next project for my DD is going to be a KP's Jumper. It's a mosaic pattern from Barbara Walters designed by Celeste Culpepper: http://www.knitpicks.com/books/itemid_50410/books_display.aspx

The raspberry sweater is from Amy's Bumble Bee sweater pattern. It has a butterfly stitch pattern. I used Caron Simply Soft. Note: do not put this yarn in super-hot dryer for long. It will lose it's shine and get a little bit fuzzy... though it still looks decent enough IMHO.

The pink heart blanket pics I had forgotten about since we have a gazillion pics of our daughter saved on our computer. Can you see the hearts? It's kinda hard, sorry. :oops:

The other pics are of the sweaters I included in the original post. I just HAD to show what my cutie pie looks like in my knitted creations! :heart:

Your baby girl is lovely. I assume from the prolific knitting you have done that you haven't had a problem with carpal tunnel from pregnancy. I didn't start knitting again until my daughter was at school and my son was an anti-clothing toddler. Every now and then I am ALMOST tempted to have another baby so that I can knit for him/her, although I probably woudn't be able to anyway because I get such bad carpal tunnel when pregnant and for a year or so after. Even now I have to be careful I don't overdo knitting, data entry or gardening and holding books to read.
But hooray, my niece has just had a baby girl so now I can knit for her.

I especially like the photos of your little girl with the pink blanket, both sleeping and playing peekaboo - very cute.

Thank you! The pattern for the blue hooded sweater is from booklet #623 Leisure Arts The All New TEACH YOURSELF TO KNIT by Evie Rosen. I think the yarn used was Caron Wintuk. [The shade I'm not sure about -- possibly Colonial Blue Ombre(?).] It was fun to do the cable all the way up to the top of the hood. I plan on making this sweater again when my daughter outgrows it! :XX:
