I couldn't find any green to match so I went with purple. I think it looks okay. It's going to charity - Stitches from the Heart.

That is really gorgeous! I love the seed stitch (I'm making seed edges instead of garter on my current project).

It's beautiful, Jan. All the poor little babies that you're dressing in the world are very lucky.

Thank you, Rebecca! I used Bernat Softee Baby. The green was mint and I'm not positive on the multi, but I think it was pink parade. :think:

I think it looks great with that ribbon. In fact, it was a wonderful choice. It brings out the background colors a bit more. The sweater as always "O baby sweater queen" is beautiful!

Jan,

That turned out real well. I like the purple ribbon. Does the variegated yarn also have the MC green as one of its colors? There are rows where the green seems to be part of the variegated rows. It's kind of interesting when you find a yarn that has a color that matches the MC so well, it makes unexpected effects.

It is great that you do so much knitting for charity. I know it is appreciated by those on the receiving end.

Yes, it does. The Bernat Softee Baby seems to have several of those that do that. It does make an interesting combo when you use a solid with it.
