Finishing touches

I finally got around to finishing the details on the baby cardigans tonight.

Buster got buttons:I was planning on buying some star-shaped buttons for this one, but in the end I was too lazy, so I just raided Mom's button jar and found these green ones, which match pretty well.

Splash got buttons AND blanket stitchIt's my first time doing blanket stitch, and I need a little more practice, but it's not bad. It certainly makes the cardigan look more finished.

These two, along with the pink one I knit a few months ago will all be gifted to the respective coworkers and parents-to-be tomorrow.

I guess I better get them wrapped!

Adorable. I like the blanket stitch on the sweater. I think it gives it a "country" look.

Very pretty! That's one lucky baby.

they look gorgeous; I really have to get a baby cardi cast on for my friends; though there are a few more months before bump arrives.

The blanket stitch does look very nice, makes it looked finished, I agree. I think I'll try that in the future.

Although the shaped buttons often look cute, I sometimes wonder whether they wouldn't jab into a baby if it rolled onto it's tummy. The green ones are a good match.

Looks like you're getting lots accomplished.
