I finished my striped baby hoodie...finally! It's for my cousin and his wife's first baby. They are HUGE Auburn University football fans, so I made the sweater in Auburn colors. I'm very proud of it :aww:
Here's the pic, and I stopped by Old Navy to get some baby jeans to go with it!

Thanks, everyone!
I sent the package with the sweater and jeans off today, so hopefully they'll be getting it soon! I do wish I could have found a softer yarn. I could only find the bright orange in 100% acrylic - Caron Perfect Match. But it's ok.

Great idea!!

My son & his wife are expecting, they are both USC (SOUTH CAROLINA) grads and fans. I'll have to steal your idea (with USC colors of course).

Your sweater is adorable! You inspired me to knit one from the same pattern, and I just finished mine. Here is the pic. I used Lion cotton-ease, as suggested in the pattern. The yarn is so soft and easy to work with. But I hated the pattern by the time I finished knitting it, and it was a pain to sew together. I love the finished product, though.

Great job!

Knit4fun, if you find a chart with bucky badger, please let me know!

And yes, great job on that baby sweater! It looks nice, comfy and colorful! :inlove:
