The last of the baby sweaters

At least for now ! I finished the sweater for Tara just in time for the baby shower on Sunday . The photo doesn't capture just how pretty the colour is ; it's a beautiful soft green called "Green Tea ". The yarn is Elann 's Superwash Bamboo , 65 % wool , 35 % bamboo . It was super to knit up and soft, soft , soft , perfect for a baby knit . I found some pretty buttons that remind me of those nougat candies , again you can't really see how pretty they are due to the washed out looking photos .

The Christmas knitting has begun . First up are some socks for Emma . I have lots of knits in mind but am taking it one project at a time . Whatever gets done , great , what doesn't there's always next year and birthdays coming up . I'm aiming for stress free holidays . I can hope can't I ?

You are on a roll with your Baby knits! It's stress free until the baking starts! :o) I have not started Christmas knitting. I might just do something for my parents, nothing else this year.

The sweater is gorgeous. I love bamboo yarn - it's so soft and silky. And the stitch patterns show so nicely.

The sweater if lovely! I'm sure you're glad to see the last of those!

I'm doing Christmas knitting also and hope I can get it done without too much stress!

I'm concentrating on my Christmas knits now, too.
