Premie Baby Sweater: Remake 1 and 2

A few days ago, I knit a premie baby sweater and loved it. I decided to write a pattern for it. The pattern will be for premie to 2 year old size.

I want to make a few changes to the original, but it will still be a quick easy knit for babies using a worsted weight yarn.

I picked colors today for the new samples. I picked colors that would make the yoke fun, and would give the sweaters a touch of retro French! ( The sweaters will be gifted to my new little cousin due to be born in May in Paris.)

One of the sweaters will be oatmeal and blue, while the other will be oatmeal and red. I can hardly wait to pick the buttons!

I had time to work on the pattern for the Retro Cardi for Girls last night aand have made some progress. It should be ready soon.

That's it for today. Now I need to go drink my coffee. I just realized thanks to the splitting headache, and an unusual impatience that I had forgotten to have coffee this morning...

The oatmeal and blue colors remind me of my husbands baby sweater when he was a little boy. His grandmother made the sweater 50 years ago; she was from Bury St. Edmonds, England. My two boys wore the sweater and now I'm saving the sweater for when they have children. The colors you picked out are breathtaking. I will be knitting this pattern. Thank you.

Every year my knitting circle finds preemie patters to send to the local hospital's NICU. Fortunately one of the ladies in the circle works there so we make preemie sweaters and just hand them over.

I hope to add your pattern to our pattern list. Thank you!

Yesterday my niece gave birth to her little 4 pound daughter. I am anxiously awaiting your pattern to be able to send to this new little one!
