wee Envelope

Easy-to-wear envelope neck baby sweater
This little sweater is the result of a silly challenge I set myself the day before a scheduled photoshoot with a newborn. That adorable sleepy stage is fleeting and new parents have enough to deal with without me showing up constantly, camera in hand, and a bag full of outfits. Could I knit just one more sweater in a day. I could. I wouldn't necessarily recommend that you do the same, but even if it takes a little more than one day, Envelope makes a great fast gift.
