  1. Love the baby sweater dress AND your choice of yarn. I'd never really looked at the Bernat Jacquard yarns before, but will now! This dress will be perfect for DGD Ireland!

  2. I love this yarn! I ordered 2 skeins in each of the colorways that I liked, and there were quite a few. It is an acrylic yarn, just so you know, but for baby stuff, I like that as it makes it easy to wash and give as gifts without worrying that the exhausted new parents will chuck it in the washer without thinking. It is soft, unlike most acrylics.

    Also, the labels all have really cute free patterns! I particularly like the stuffed bunny rabbit toy. I have made several of these, and they are always a huge hit with the recipient.
