FOs: Sweater & hat

Finished! This is my second Absolutely Precious Baby sweater & hat. The pattern is designed by Denise Black in 24-Hour Crochet Projects ed by Rita Weiss. I used a Brittany G hook (4.0mm) with Caron Simply Soft White' and RH ‘Monet’ for the edging. This is the one for my ds's kindergarten teacher's yet-to-be born grandchild!

This is the first project that I have sewn my own label in. I made them using iron-on transfer pages and white ribbon. Here's a close-up that shows the star buttons my son chose and my label!

LOVE THE SWEATER!!!!!!! It looks so nice in white and I love the trim. And your labels are VERY impressive! The sideways shell afghan is just about my favorite thing to make, too. I love your work!!!

Those are very darling. You did a wonderful job.
I have never thought about doing the labels for my work. I'll have to think about that with the afghans and clothing that I do.
Great job.
