fo: wrap baby sweater

This wrap sweater is adorable but I despised knitting the honeycomb pattern.  I maybe would make it again in seed stitch or garter stitch.  The construction is really clever.
 I used about 2 and a half balls of knitpicks comfy yarn in honeydew from my stash and size six needles.  The pattern is Judy's Grandmother's Baby Sweater by Judy Spector from Greetings from Knit Cafe.
No picture of it being modeled by the recipient, Logan, but I've seen him in it and it's adorable on him too!

fo: Arthur's Baby Quilt

This is a welcome gift for the new, adorable son of my crafing inspiration and wonderful friend, Jenny. I had a lot of fun making these pinwheel blocks. However, I machine bound the quilt (front and back) and it came out looking extremely shoddy. But I didn't have time to redo it! Other than the messy binding job, I'm happy with how this quilt turned out.
Finished size: 34" x 44"
Pinwheel blocks made from 24 print and 24 white 5" squares cut in half for triangles. The white border is made from 3" wide strips.
