Designs: baby stuff ...

A good friend just had her 10th baby ... a little girl.  I happened to be playing with some yarn that "screamed" baby girl Easter ... so I designed this sleeveless top for this 10th blessing:

the body stitch is taken from an Austrian lace-knitting pattern book, and is similar to many of the "arch" style patterns.   
Here's a closeup of the collar lace (with the 3 pink-button closure).

The yarn is Bernat's Sox and knits up beautifully (and since it's acrylic, it's washable) -- perfect for busy moms.

Happy knittin'
