We cleaned our garage, and went through our packed boxes, getting much of it ready for donation.  I couldn’t, however, donate my treasured baby clothes.  Here is my collection of baby sweaters, worn by my two children.

Cookie sweater.  I call it that because the buttons look like cookies to me. Thrift shop find.

batwing sleeved sweater knitted by my friend Amy S. for Jake.  I have a smaller one {have to find it!} that is just as adorable.

As you can tell all my sweater are thrift shop finds, except for the ones made by Amy.  I wasn’t crocheting very much at the time, mostly doing beadwork.  I envy those new moms who had moms and grandma’s to knit and crochet for them.  I also envy new moms now who have the wonderful internet to be able to easily get yarn and patterns!  I fully intend to gift my kids with loads of handmade baby items, so that they also have something special to hang on to.
