Hat and sweater

One of the couples at the Kingdom Hall that I go to just had a baby boy last Monday. I decided that I should make a little something so a little sweater and hat was to be. I used Caron Simply Soft Paints yarn in the color "Tapestry". It worked up so beautiful and I just love this yarn. If you get a chance to try it I highly recommend it. For the buttons I sewed one on and attached the other one to some invisible elastic so that mom can unbutton it with ease, not loose the button and also because I thought it need the two buttons to make it more decorative. All in all I am please with the way it turned out.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Love the colors, I have tried the simply soft in baby ombre but not the paints. I really liked it. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

I love the Simply Soft yarns but have not tried the paints. Great job on the hat and sweater and I'm sure they will love it.

It turned out lovely sis, and I had no doubts that it would. I am sure they will feel very blessed that you thought enough of them to do this. And he will look like a sweet little guy wearing this outfit.
