My first baby topdown raglan!
I feel dumb showing this after seeing all the beautiful work ya'll do and some of you are NEW to this compared to me. I have a new grandaughter--she's 2 months old now--and I know she wont be able to wear this til she's a year old but here it is anyway!

The pattern is off a website--I'll try to find out which later, and I used Bernat Softee Baby , as it recommended and size 4 needles for the body and size 2 for the ribbing.THe little buttons a pearl heartsClick image for larger version

It's lovely. You'll have such a glow feeling when the little poppet can wear it

Thanks all--and you ,Jan--are one of the queens of the baby sweaters for charity around here--thank you so much!! I love your Baby Surprise Jackets so much, but I had a problem following the directions--I may have to chat with you about that!

Funny--they both think she looks like me! She has a little round face and pointed chin and so far, blue eyes , like I did when I was a baby--so we'll see. I HOPE she is a mix of her mom and dad--she'll be beautiful!

Some said my son looked more like my grandfather at a particular age. Interesting. Lovely bubba..

Have you been encouraged to try other items for her now or will your next FO be something for yourself?
