Springtime baby set

It's spring-time. The air is warming, the sun is golden, and ... friends are having babies. Whee!

I'm posting my first finished project in ages. Though I've been knitting over the past year, and I've finished a few projects, this is the first one I felt like sharing :) Made for my friend Marcus's first baby, who arrived in the past few weeks :)

Yarn: Madeline Tosh DK in Ivy

Modified slightly for gauge -- and I didn't like the look of the applied I-cord buttonholes, so I went with sewn-on buttons over snaps! The sweater took more than one ball of yarn, but far less than two, so I made a hat as well. Supplies came from the new Fancy Tiger location. Now just have to mail the sucker before the baby can walk!

Just ready for a hug!

Very nice, and very stylish. It reminds me of the Cobblestone pattern.
