I know of two special people who are expecting a baby soon, and neither one knows if it’s a girl or a boy.  So, I’m hoping that at least one of them has a little pink to look forward to and will be thrilled to received this cute little cupcake sweater.

The pattern is the same as one I previously posted for Sweet Baby Norah.  It is from the book Knitting Just for Baby, by House of White Birches.  The yarn is a machine-washable cotton blend by Classic Elite, called Pebbles…great for spring and summer.  I embellished the sweater with a little crocheted cupcake applique that I made using some dk cotton stash yarns.  The pattern was from one of the Japanese crochet books that I bought a while ago, Crochet Edging and Braiding.  If you are not inclined to spend $25 for this book (which is written in Japanese but has lots of graphs), check out “Cupcake Applique” on Ravelry which looks (amazingly) just like the one in the book.

I love this sweater, and I’m tempted to place it in my “keepsake-handknits-in-case-I-ever-have-a-grandchild-treasure-box”.  But I think, instead, I’ll make a cupcake hat to match and hope that one of my pregnant friends has a baby girl.

Baby boy???  I better get  moving on something blue.

      I AM tempted to keep it, but it is intended for the other “A” in the event another beautiful girl is born. HowEVER…should it be a little boy….this sweater is spoken for 😉
