Baby Crazy

I'm officially an aunt!  Well, kind of.  I'm actually a first cousin once removed or something, but we all agreed that it was a lot easier to just call me Aunt Laura!  Yay!

In honor of little Elizabth's 1st birthday (or is it her 0th birthday?  I am clearly not up on all this baby stuff) my mom and I took a class at The Lamb Shoppe in Denver, where we learned how to make a really adorable top-down baby sweater.  I decided to make mine in green with pink buttons so that it would be cutesy but not over-the-top advertise-to-the-world-that-I'm-a-girl pink.

The pattern was made by Mai Wyn over at the Lamb Shoppe, and she also taught the class which was so much fun!  If you're ever in Denver I highly recommend stopping into the store.

I can't wait to learn how to knit more baby things!  I accidentally became a little bit baby crazy, but how could I not fall in love with that adorable little 1-day-old face?  I'm totally smitten.

Congratulations to Jon and Sarah, the happy parents!


  1. That is just adorable, very nice work!

  2. I love the green with the pink! So girly and fresh without being the same old thing. :)

  3. That sweater is awesome - I love the bright green with the little accent of pink! Is this your first knitting project? If so, you are a natural! I will have to check out those classes (I'm in the general Denver area too!) - thanks for the referral! :)

  4. Thanks! It's my second project; I learned how to knit on a pair of legwarmers. That's cool you're in Denver too! I really do recommend that store. I love it.

  5. Ummm, love it. Such an adorable sweater. I think I may need to wander over to Lamb Shoppe too. I'm finding every crafty project I want to do these days is baby related...=) PS - Fabric Bliss is great for classes too in case you haven't checked out that shop yet.

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting about my candle jar storage! The baby sweater you knitted is adorable! Great job on that. Knitting seems so hard!

  7. That sweet little cardigan is too cute! Nice work:)
