I've talked about the little kimono I was knitting for Rebekah's baby, and I finally have a picture to show you. It's actually been done for a couple weeks, but I didn't get the project up on Ravelry until today. Rebekah had requested this pattern, and she chose the yarn, so I'm pretty sure she's going to be happy with it.
This next sweater I'm not so sure about. In fact, when we were looking at potential baby patterns on Ravelry a few months ago I think she might have actually vetoed this one. It is so small I'm quite sure it will only fit for about three minutes after the baby is born, and it has a name that leaves a bit to be desired. But I thought it was cute as a button, which is why I have renamed it Button Button on my Ravelry project page.
The best part of making this wee cardigan was choosing the buttons. My friend and neighbour Lynda has a button collection and invited me to come have a look. We had a blast sifting through hundreds of buttons, coming up with just the right colours. There might have been a glass of wine involved at some point as well.

Now I'm down to Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Sweater On Two Needles. Karen from Pumpkin Sunrise very kindly came to my rescue and sent some expanded instructions, so I now have high hopes of it actually getting completed, and having it resemble a sweater for a human baby instead of something from the animal kingdom.
