As I have mentioned before, my baby sister Bri is pregnant. I can’t remember if I mentioned that she is going to have a girl. Maggie. Cute right? Even though we have only met via the few kicks I have felt her give through her mom’s tummy, I can already feel the bond she and I have and I can’t wait to officially meet in around 5 weeks.
So of course, Maggie needs some hand-knits and thankfully she has two aunts who can deliver such items. Early on, Kara chose a super cute hoodie pattern for the baby and I really wanted to knit a dress. It was hard for me to choose a pattern because there is just so much cuteness to be knit. It came down to a debate between this and this and finally…
This. Vintage Baby Dress.
I have mentioned this before but I will say it again. I sure do enjoy a good baby knit. Everything is so wee.
