BSJ #8 and #9

Are now FINISHED! Yea!


Here's the up close look at the buttons.

Details:
EZ's BSJ pattern, Baby Bee, Sweet Delights Pomp yarn in Blueboy and Sunshine. Each used ~322 yards/109 grams total...~25 yards of the yellow in each sweater. I used (US) 6 (4.0mm) needles for the body of the sweater, (US) 4 (3.5mm), (US) 6 (4.0mm), and (US) 8 (5.0mm) needles for the collar. The 'extra' details for the I-cord Bind off and I-cord Seams can be found in the tutorials on the left side of this blog. Adding the collar, I learned from the Yahoo Knit Baby Surprise group-link under the yahoo groups also listed on the left side of this blog. Love this pattern, Love the yahoo group!


Now, since these were made for a set of twins (boy and a girl) due in November whose Momma was my daughter's UCLA roommate a few years back...I added the 'Bruin' Buttons to round out the cutey-pie sweaters. Hope they all love 'em!

Now, it's time to finished the matching blankets...and 2 more sweaters in larger sizes...

Beautiful knitting, Cathy! That i-cord bindoff is a much better substitute for just plain chain crocheting. I'll keep that in mind for the next one(s) I knit -- but you surely are well ahead of me!

Great choice of colors, and sentimental, too.

That I-cord bindoff and seaming, makes me want to go back and redo the earlier sweaters all over again!

Also, team/school colors, really make it easy to pick out sweaters for babies, I tell ya! Don't have to worry if Mom hates or loves the pink colors for girls, etc... I have daughters on both sides of that aisle!

Those are beautiful sweaters and a beautiful adaptation of the school colors. I love the spacing of the stripes!
