Needlework: Baby Sweater Set and Blanket in "Iced Mint"

This shower gift for a new baby on the way includes the infamous zip-up hooded sweater, a tie sweater and hat, bootees and a bunny toy as well as the feather and fan afghan.
  The hooded sweater "Jack Frost/Number 766-27" can be found in Columbia Minerva Book 766 "Beautiful Baby Book, Infants to Four Years" on amazon.com.   The tie sweater can be found in the same book, "Queen Anne's Lace/Number 766-7". And the adorable bootees pattern #3005 is from "Lovable Hand Knits, Infants to 4 Years" which can also be purchased on amazon.com. 
Both these books are great sources of knit and crochet patterns for babies and toddlers.

What a gorgeous ensemble! Before my oldest was born my mother-in-love gave us a beautiful mint sweater and blanket (and booties and hat). He was a boy but he could still wear it, and it was so pretty!

Thanks for linking up today.
