Welcome Baby Christopher!

My beautiful niece Marissa welcomed her second son on January 10th!  You know what that means.... Time for Auntie Dianne to make him something special :-)  I chose my favorite baby sweater pattern, Textured Fred by Louisa Harding.
I love this sweater for it's simple, classic design.  It has a simple textured pattern framed by some garter stitch edges.
I chose Rowan Pure Life Organic Cotton DK in medium indigo, which is a perfect color for a sweet baby boy.  It's not too pastel, and it's not too dark.  I only wish that this was a machine wash yarn, because what new mom has time to hand wash baby clothes, but I couldn't find a machine washable yarn that I liked, that would be a good substitute for the yarn the pattern called for.

Welcome to the world Christopher Richard!  When you wear this, know how much Auntie loves you :-)
