A New Thought

Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever-fresh and radiant possibility ~ Kate Douglas Wiggin


Once I figured this little number out it was so easy. I'm still so new at reading patterns that I had a few head scratching moments and frogged my first sweater twice. But once it clicked I had a good chuckle at myself for making something so simple complicated.



For some reason these little sweaters make me think of cherry blossoms ... I had to take a picture under our cherry tree ...

It just seemed fitting to do so. I am now obsessed with making baby sweaters and on the hunt for vintage buttons. Nothing like adding to my list addictions ;-) The yarn was sooo soft - I used Caron Simply Soft Baby - mmmmm.

These sweet Bombay Love sweaters are on their way to little miracles ... or should I say ever-fresh and radiant possibilities.

Those are so sweet. A unique vintage button would definately bring it over the top.
