Baby Hoodie for Baby-to-be Maggie

It's something very special when your baby sister is having a baby. So something special has to be done to celebrate. And yes, folks, that means a baby knit! (BTW...this is that secret knitting a mentioned a while ago.)


One of Bri's fashion loves is a good hoodie. So I wanted to give Maggie (the baby-to-be) one of her own.


What I think really makes this baby knit is the ribbon trim. It looks so vintage, fitting perfectly with the style of the cardi.


Here are some stats...

The ribbon was an excellent choice, it frames everything up so perfectly. I just love it!

I'm obsessed with this. Absolutely, totally obsessed. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled it out of her closet just to coo at it.

I love it. And you.

Thanks for making Maggie the cutest ever.

Maggie is so lucky to have you for an auntie! I'm jealous of her wardrobe and the upcoming sleepovers already!

Some Liberty of London baby items are in order to go with the hoodie!!!!

So darling! I love the ribbon trim. This pattern has been on my to-knit list for quite some time -- now I really feel the need to cast on.

Too too cute! She is going to be one well-outfitted little lady =).

And, be the way, thank you for posting a picture of Breezy--we've seen only her belly on her blog!

Baby knits are so awesome. This is adorable, and I'm sure Maggie will be stylin' in no time! She's got a family of stylish women to help her avoid bad fashion choices. I love the purple 220.

So cute. And purple will look great with some bright red hair ;)

Heidelweiss said...

Um, LOVE. It's the cutest.

On another note... WHAT?! You had to buy the bike, didn't you? I really do love it and want one for myself. And excuse me very much for being mildly annoyed that you didn't sell your other bike to ME. Hmmph. That is all I shall say for now.
