Handknit Cotton Baby Top - Complete!

Woo Hoo! Tonight, I finished knitting the little cotton baby top! I've been working on it for the past few months, and really wanted to finish it before the end of the year. Mission accomplished!

I was still knitting it tonight, and finally cast off all the stitches at about 10 PM.

After seaming it, I decided it looked nice, but needed a little something added.

So, I added the little embroidered flower, using some linen embroidery thread. I like it!

Nice job on the sweater: it is very cute. Is this made from the cotton yarn you bought on ebay?

Are you missing all the Oddball Baby Blanket Knitters yet?

Thanks Nancy!

Yes, it's the Jessan Cotton Carole I got in a vintage knitting kit on eBay for a few dollars. It was a great deal, and the yarn is wonderful!

And, yes....I miss the baby blanket knitters I don't work with anymore. But I'm involved in the Southeast region as one of the knitters. :) It's nice to let others take the reins for a while. :D

And we're still making fullsize Oddball Blankets, Shawls, and Pet Snuggles. So, I get to see a lot of you there. ;)
