FO: ladybug baby sweater
i had asked for some advice regarding the antennae on this sweater, so i thought people might like to see how everything turned out! the pattern is baby hoodie at lion brand, and i just improvised the circles on the back and the antennae on the hood.

you can see more photos here on flickr. i sent it to a friend for her six month-old daughter, and she loves it! i think it turned out pretty cute, even if the antennae are a bit floppy
OTN: seed stitch ruffled wrap (lion brand pattern)

recently FO: popsicle plush, glowing colors afghan (lion brand pattern)

i am on ravelry!

Hey, I like the way this little sweater turned out. That will be so cute on a little guy or gal. Are the spots intarsia? They look great. You definintely needed the antennae. So cute.
