FO: baby sweater with hood
Adding hoods to sweaters is a new skill I'm learning. Finally got it licked. Third time's the charm. All that's left is weaving in the ends and buttons attached.

The yarn was a delight to use. Joann's Sensations Rainbow Classics brushed bulky acrylic in bright baby pastels. I loved the way this self striped.

It is really cute. I have made a couple of hooded things and they can be tricky but once you get the hang of it not bad at all.

This is for my first grandchild. Emma Lou was born the end of September. I knit her a newborn baby sweater, but she's almost outgrown it. Time for a new bigger one.
