My favorite sweater pattern once again, this time in mint green along with a soft and comfy "feather and fan" pattern baby afghan. You can find the sweater pattern in the Columbia Minerva Book 766 "Beautiful Baby Book", Infants to Four Years on amazon.com . The pattern is "Jack Frost".
I don't recall where I found the afghan pattern as it is hand written inside one of my pattern books. Perhaps this will tempt you to pick up those knitting needles!
