Baby Gift - complete!

My cousin Angie is expecting her first child in a couple of weeks, so I decided to get knitting!  This is the Baby Top with Seed Stitch Trim from Debbie Bliss...  SOOO  freaking cute!  I made the 6-12 month size, but it may fit well into toddlerhood!    And the booties, I can't take the cuteness!    Raveled here for the sweater and here for the booties...  I used Paton's Grace in Ginger for the main color and Spearmint for the contrast.  US 2 and 3 needles.  They have some great colors and I loved working with this yarn!    Congratulations Angie and Paul!

Our new favorite salad! It's a wedge, but MUCH healthier! This Bolthouse Farms Blue Cheese Dressing is made from Yogurt, it's all natural and no preservatives. Throw some tomatoes and bacon on and there you go...
