As I promised....

So I tried taking pix this AM with the booty modeling the sweater. Again this is before I washed it so it's still a little "stiff" that's the only way I can explain it...

she wasn't helping me any I took like 20 pix and these are the best.. I just got done pulling the sweater out of the dryer and it's soooo soft... So here's the patter link again. I crochet'd the 6 month size. I modified it a bit to have 5 buttons down all the way I like it that way... And I used Red heart baby clouds color 9095 peppermint and the purple is a rec yarn that I have from a sweater I took apart. So I have to say that the yarn was not fun to crochet with it's all bumpy like and hard to tell what or where the stitches and I was constantly catching wisps of the yarn around my hook and well it was really annoying! So I was thinking of getting rid of the stinking yarn not knowing why anyone would want to knit or crochet with it... But after washing the sweater and drying it I love it it's super soft! I'm totally convinced it was worth all the annyoingness etc... Plus I don't have to worry about blocking or anything it's perfect! if I may say so myself... LOL it's so nice I think I have enough to crochet another one in the 12 month size for my baby...Yeah! I'm also planning a yellow and black sweater for the booty for her Steelers and pirates onsies that my DH bought her... They're cute but at night here it's chilly and also in the winter it's nice to have something to cover up with! LOL so with that here's another cute pix I was trying for the sweater but my sweetie the booty moved so I got half face and half sweater... Still cute though!

Yayy! A soft, comfy sweater that doesn't have to be blocked! Blocking is BORRRING! She has a cute head-to-toe outfit, so color coordinated.
