Man, I love knitting for babies and little kids. These projects go fast!
I finished the body of the Scalloped Lace Toddler Sweater the other day. I love the way the colored scallops worked out. Perfect for a little “girly girl,” doncha think? (Although I will admit that I’m somewhat less enthusiastic about weaving in all of the ends!)
I found some perfect buttons on Etsy (again from Tessa Ann).
I’m not sure about the button band, though. I originally planned to do an I-cord button band in white. Then I thought about doing it in the same pink as the top scallop. Then when I got to the end of the body and still had the purple yarn attached, I thought I’d use that instead. But now I’m back to thinking that I might like buttons better against the white. Hmmmm. Anyone have any opinions on the subject?

I love the purple! It connects so nicely to the edging!
I agree with the purple, it just gives it more unity.
You did a great job on this. I can only wait to see what you’ll do for the sleeves.
