Well I'm set if Kelli has a girl, I made this darling little sweater using a vintage pattern published in Patons #201, Baby Parade, unfortunately this publication is no longer in print.
It was a fun pattern, and not as complicated as it looks. No seaming, except for the arms.
I might attempt a hat and booties to match, but I'm not to sure they will be necessary as the baby will be born in September. I think I'll just put the yarn aside and if we need a hat, I'll whip one up!

I adore the pattern! I'm going to have to find a copy in order to make something to match the Saartje Booties I'm finishing - looks like you can get the book for cheap on some online used book stores.
