Little boy blue...

... and his little hat, too!

July is very special month in our family, with at least six birthdays and a seventh almost certain to happen before the end of the month. This set is headed out to Dave and Kate in Chicago to help welcome their little one who's due in a couple of weeks.

The yarn is "Buttons," which is quickly becoming my favorite soft wool for wee ones.

Today is wrapping up what's been sort of an extended long weekend. I was off work on Wednesday, worked on Thursday, took a vacation day Friday, worked only a few hours Saturday, and am off today. It's been terrific, and very good for my knitting and sewing productivity. Hope everyone else is enjoying these wonderful days of summer, too.

Is being born in July a prerequisite to being in your family? That's a lot of birthdays for one month. The hat is great addition to the sweater. I like the red buttons.

What a great gift set, Anne. You have so many good ideas. The last I heard you were running short of yarn before finishing the sweater. Was it a problem to get an identical match for the finish and the cap?
