FOs and Notre Dame De Grace Sweater

First up, I am very excited that the Notre Dame De Grace sweater is almost finished. I am working on the collar and then I need to sew the sleeves in, weave in the ends, sew on the button and ta da --- fini!!
I am using Elann's Highland Chunky yarn in colour 727 - spiced wine, size 5mm needles and am making size 40. It is nice and roomy which is how I like my sweaters.

Next up is the preemie sweater I started a few days ago. I have 4 to make and this is the first one completed. It will fit a 3 - 5lb baby and is teeny tiny compared to a newborn sweater.
I am using Patons Early Arrival pattern leaflet and James C. Brett Kool Kotton.

I have started another "girls" sweater and will post a picture when I am a little further along.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished baby quilt. The blocks were made by a friend who decided not to finish her queen size quilt. Thanks, Kirst!!! I am sure a couple of babies will be very happy to receive your work :-)
It is 36" x 36" and has pretty floral flannel on the back.

Oh my goodness...I think that is the cutest little baby sweater I've ever seen!! It is fun watching you knit these precious preemie cardigans!

What a gorgeous little sweater. I think I have that pattern in my collection. I ran across your blog in the Pacific NW bloggers ring (nice blog, too).

I am presently knitting up a pair of booties that are ending up premie size. I would love to know where you send your hand-knit premie items.

The sweater is beautiful! I think it's wonderful that you have decided to make one for each baby. What a special gift.
