Another Baby Sweater

I just can't seem to resist making baby sweaters.
I think it's because they are small and I actually will finish them, unlike something larger.
I saw this one in a Noro magazine from Japan when I was at Barnes and Noble.  
But it was the only thing I liked so rather then buy it, I copied the pattern down on a napkin I had in my purse.
Yah, I know that's not right, but I hate buying a knit magazine unless there are at least 2-3 things inside I want to make.
Wish I'd taken a pix of the napkin when I finished this piece a year after I started this.
Falling apart  LOL

The yarn for this was a Noro yarn called Shiraito, 45% Cashmere, 45% Angora 10% Wool, super soft and perfect for baby skin but very pricey at $32 a skien.  This sweater took 2 1/2 skeins.
The buttons all came from my husband's mother's sewing box.
I'm hoping to give it to his daughter when she has her first baby girl.
Hopefully real soon  :)
