Baby Start

One of the baristas at the coffee shop where I go to knit in public on Thursday's is having a baby.  We are all making her something handmade for the baby and throwing her a surprise baby shower at the beginning of August.  She is having a girl so rather than start something pink, I looked for something different.  I ordered some cotton yarn in red and purple from Webs.  Once it arrived, I decided to go with the red and make a baby sweater from the book Greetings From Knit Cafe.

I've never knit anything for a baby before so I made sure to swatch.  Luckily, I got the correct gauge with my swatch and started in on the project.  This is my progress so far.  I am using Cascade UltraPima which I absolutely love.  It is the softest cotton which can be machine washed.  I hope to get more accomplished this evening so I can be sure it will be done on time!
