gwen. in purple.

Same sweater.  In purple. Same pattern.  Same yarn.  Same size.  Same buttons.
Same ball of brown yarn, used for both.  Same labels.  Sewn into the side seam.
Same wrapping.  
Same accomplished feeling  for finishing both.  Since the same amount of time (one year) has passed since these babies were born.  
Wow, it feels good to have gotten these finished and in the mail.

They are soooo cute! I love the sophisticated palette. Yet the sweaters are still appropriate for a baby. Those are two very lucky little girls.

I think both recipients (or, their mom's, at least) will decree the wait WELL worth it. Cute, cute, cute!

Very cute sweater. Thanks for adding the link to the labels too. I've been looking to get some made and I like the variety the company has.
