"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

Warm Belly-Buttons.....


Yes - everyone should have one! So - I added onto the bottom of my sweater! My DH (yes - darling man that he is) says it looks like it's supposed to be that way!! Sure!! - but he means well!

After I got the sleeves on, the body had shrunk even more - so, as a last resort. ... Then, I did not like the seams on the garter band, so -- a little creative detail stitching.

It will be warm!! Gotta remember that.....

It's adorable! I like your color choices much better than mine. I'll wait to see if I need to add another garter border but probably I won't. The "X'x" may be necessary. Great idea!

Adorable, bright and beautiful!! There is going to be one happy warm little child. I can imagine them all saying "I want THAT one!"

I agree with your husband. The addition was very artfully done and could easily have been planned as the original design by a good designer.

I also agree with Pat. Some child is going to love it.

Send it with pride. It's beautiful.

Actually it really does look like it belongs there. Unless someone has actually seen a sweater built the normal way they would probably think with all the weird colour blocks and textures that that strip at the bottom is exactly as it should be.

And I like it, and the stitches at the side seem are really neat looking!
You are going to make some kid incredibly happy :D
