Making...

The last few days found me frantically knitting.  My step-mom asked me to make a baby sweater for a shower that she was attending.  Of course I said yes, and thought I had plenty of time...
oops, when they said October, they meant October 1st!  
You probably are having a deja vu  moment, thinking you've seen this sweater/dress/tunic before here at Upper Pond.
Well have no worries, you have and you aren't going crazy.

 I made the exact same sweater before...here are the details.
 The first time I made this I bought way too much yarn.  Not sure what I was thinking.  I still have yarn to make one more.  Anyone having a baby girl?
Last time I made the 6 months size.
This time I made size one.
I highly recommend this little sweater dress.  It is quick to knit and looks adorable on.
Plus, this little outfit lasts forever.  It can start off as a dress and finish as a cute little top.  
I'm off to knit some hats for charity...I'm done with baby knits for awhile!

Very pretty! I will definitely put it on my list! I'm DYING to make baby things. To the point where, when I just found out my poor neighbor had discovered a surprise fourth baby was due around her 40th birthday, all I cared about was, "YAY! Someone to knit for!"

(Oh, yeah, and good luck with that baby when you're 40 thing...")

This is one of my most favorite knits for little girls. You are so right about its versatility. Although, now that I think about it, Gianna only wore hers twice. Love the color and buttons you chose.

I just found you via Flickr. What a lovely little dress! I'm adding this to my Ravelry queue for next spring. You've done such a nice job. I'm following you now and can't wait to see what you're working on next. Thanks for sharing the details of this.
