Baby It's Cold Outside

I finished the sweater up this afternoon and plan to make a little matching hat for the baby gift Mike needed.

Pattern: Baby It's Cold Outside

Modifications: In retrospect, I should have used the J hook for the body like I usually do, but somehow, I used a K hook.

I used Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink for the body, trim done in two rounds of sc and using Lion Brand Baby Soft Yarn in Candy and using an I hook. I also did trim around the bottom of the sweater and around the sleeve cuffs. I also crocheted the buttons using a strand of each yarn and an H hook and just kind of made a thick little flower.

This will fit from 6-9 mos, maybe even to 12 months.

I also snapped a pic of Elena's ghan. The rectangles will be attached once it is completed. I hope this turns out and am beginning to have some doubts-but will figure out a way to make it work out. The edges are curling a bit, but hopefully once joined together and edged this will work it's way out.

Physical therapy for tomorrow is cancelled. I need an out of cap referral and I cannot get a hold of my primary and honestly, it's a PITA all the way around. I think I'll wait til I see the neuro on Monday-he'll order another MRI, for sure, but he'll also do accupuncture/accupressure and maybe that's all I'll need.

It's almost 80 degrees here today and it's only supposed to get to 52 on Friday-weird weather.

I did nothing today except for damp mop the dining room floor, throw some sauce and meatballs in the crock pot and crochet-NICE!

Hey Deneen, I'm always behind on my blogline reading & commenting. Thanks for your comments! I love the kimono jacket - I'm gonna be a grandma again so that means more fun things to make! Is there information in the pattern a day calendar for submissions? I looked (kinda) last year and didn't see any. I'd love to try my hand at it!

Thanks again! I'll be teaching your bag next week. We'll send pictures.

Sucks a person has to go through so much just to get some medical things done...

Baby sweater is adorable! So is the ghan progress!

Sounds like it was a pretty relaxing day! Yay for those!!

Love the sweater!! Sounds like it's warm and soft, too!

As for the blanket, the beauty of joining squares (for the record - I hate joining squares) is they can be fudged and it will usually workout! I love the colors you're using!

Totally love that little baby sweater, and the pattern too.
The trim makes it even better too!
OMG, be glad of your temperature there today...it snowed here [ick, and some choice 4-letter words].

That sweater is adorable!

This weather is freaky, isn't it? It's been like that here, too, hot one day, then crazy thunderstorms like it's still summer or something, then chilly again.
