A Sweater for A Grandson

I've been trying to find the perfect yarn to knit a sweater for my soon to be born grandson.  Today I looked through my stash and found the perfect yarn!  100% Alpaca yarn in a beautiful Prussian blue.   I'm using the zzz-jumpsuit pattern by Pickles.  I'm hoping to have it finished by next Sunday.  Fingers crossed!



I need to find a pair of 16 inch size 9 circulars for the sleeves in order to finish.  I did eight buttonholes.  The yarn is so soft and warm.  The pattern called for knitting with two strands of yarn.  It's thick and lovely!


I finished the sweater just prior to leaving for the baby shower!  Now the sweater needs a matching hat.

And here the little feller is all dressed in his going home outfit.
