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!

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

    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! 🙂

      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.

    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.
