I spotted this pattern on Alicia's blog and happily copied the white crochet border around the edge. (Alicia's precise stitches and perfectly smooth lines in her sweaters are amazing to me.) I wanted to put gingham buttons on my sweater too but the fact is I probably wouldn't finish it for another two years if I had actually followed through with that. And so, plain old white buttons it is.
I am happy to say, this looks adorable on Baby E. You'll have to trust me since I didn't take any pictures. She is a tiny little thing. But she looks stunning in purple so I have my fingers crossed that this sweater will last her two, maybe three winters!
