That is a lovely expression on my sweet lil' girl isn't it?

Sorry, don't know how to crochet... yet! I just got SNB crochet, so maybe when I've got a couple minutes to sit and look at it I will learn. Until then, must knit (and knit). Christmas will be here before you know it!

Carolina red- having little ones is the best! it can be tough but, you have to laugh! it's all you can do sometimes!

BTW, Amen to all who think those babies are creepy... my babies never looked like that... they were too chubby

When I told DH I was thinking about knitting a gown- he told me I was nuts! (plus, the tux is his nephews- so that could be a hornet's nest!)
Well, if I were you, I'd let him wear the tux. It sounds so cute! (and it would keep peace in the family.)

I don't have a baby to put it on. I'm making it as a sample for my cousin's yarn store.

I think I'd be afraid to put it on a real baby before I deliver it to her. With my luck, the baby would have an accident from both ends!
