One Baby Sweater

We will have a new niece in August!  This time it is my husband's youngest sister who is having a baby, her first.  I have a couple of projects in mind for her, but this sweater is the first thing I've made.  It's newborn size, so I had to get it done before baby's debut.

The pattern is One Baby Sweater, available here on Ravelry.  The pattern is called One because, as the designer explains, "one skein, one needle, one button, one size, one day to make."  Um, yeah, it took me more than a day, but I'm slow.

It's really tiny!  I put my hand in the photo below for perspective. Hopefully my sister-in-law won't have a ginormous 10 lb baby (like I did, ahem).  Even if baby can only wear it once, maybe she'll use it on her dolls or a teddy bear some day.

I used yarn leftover from this project.

I have one more blossom photo to share, taken a few days ago right as the tornado sirens started wailing.

Apple blossoms, pink when they are buds, white after they bloom. I love that moment when they are pink!
