My cousin’s daughter (I give up on figuring out what that makes her to me, I just know that she’s like a neice and I remember when she was born, as I was there!) is due with her first, a little boy, on December 30th.
She was over at the house last Friday (that’s 11/21) and I pulled out this really fun purple yarn I have and asked what she thought. She loved it. She approved the pattern. I then set to knitting. I knitted the cardigan in 24 hours (not working straight, only about 6 hours total, including time sewing up seams). I made the mittens next, then the hat. I took a couple of days to find a pattern for the botties. There were a few I didn’t like, but I finally settled on this one and I like it.
So, what do you think? I’ve had several comments as to the color (Purple is a girl’s color!). I think the buttons make it, personally. I’ve always seen purple as a unisex color.
