A dear friend is about to have her first grandchild. I knit an Ibis (bird) sweater for the son-to-be in size one after making a hat for his mom-to-be. The hat, of course, is an adult size. My thought is that throughout the years to come when the mom wears the hat, she will recall how sweet her son looked when he was about one year old. The Ibis pattern was on the hat so I just used that same pattern on the sweater.
For the life of me, I cannot find either pattern. But, here are the pictures. If I find the patterns, I will post them. I am sure they are in a bag of yarn. But, my home is filled with project bags everywhere. i am addicted to knitting!
