FO: Baby Shower Gift
I just finished this baby bunting, using the Angel's Nest pattern from Ravelry. I decided to knit the whole thing in stripes. It's such a fast knit, that I've started another one.

That is so cute! I have it bookmarked, but haven't had an occasion to knit it yet.

You'll enjoy knitting it. It's mostly knit in one piece instead of so much seaming.

That is just adorable, you did a great job.

But could I make a suggestion...... It looks like there is a cord at the bottom, if this is a cord through a casing you might want to consider substituting elastic for the cord.

I am a nurse and an EMT and a few years back we had a baby brought in to the ER who strangled itself on the tie cord of a sleeper while sleeping.

It's one of my soap boxes. Last year when I started knitting for my grandbaby I was really amazed to see so many patterns that incorporated ties. If you notice in stores, the baby clothes now use elastic at the bottom of sleepers and buntings.
