I made these for my new baby niece. It is my first attempt at making a sweater so I figure what the heck start out small.

I had all the pieces knitted for a long time but I don't like to sew and don't really know how to sew. I watched Amy's video on the mattress stitch and was amazed at how invisible it really did turn out. I was showing everyone. :rollseyes: Thanks Amy, I couldn't have finished without your help!!!!! :thumbsup:

I finished sewing the sweater together the night she was born. Let's just say I won't be making another sweater anytime soon. I just wished that I liked to sew. :pray:

Now the blanket that was easy and fun. I used this pattern

with Bernat Baby Coordinate holding 2 strands--White, Baby Pink and Sweet Pink.

The baby bib is crocheted.

Beautiful!! Baby sweaters are a great way to learn to make sweaters--same principles, different size. And you always have the option of a top down seamless sweater. ;)
