Noah lives in a colder climate than Texas, so I was able to use a wool blend fiber in his sweater and blanket. I knit the 12-18 month size since Noah is no longer a newborn. The sweater pattern was designed by Nancy Lutz and is called Lutzling Sweater. It was knit in this perfect color of green in Berroco Vintage DK.
The second sweater was knit for my sister-in-law to give to her 'just-like-my-own' son in preparation for the birth of his first child, a son. It is a brighter, more updated, version of little boy blue and was knit in Berroco Comfort DK Solid yarn. I love the little star buttons in the mixed colors. These are a nod to the stars and stripes in our flag and to the baby's father for his military service. The pattern is one I've worked before and tend to return to because I love it so much - Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater by Carole Barenys. It knits up beautifully into what I think may be the perfect infant sweater.
