The results are in.

Truth be told, I was leaning toward the stars before I asked for your help. And the gold stars won the poll. The sweater has now been washed, blocked, finished, and the buttons sewn on.

Stripe Sweater Finished 02

The yarn is Cotton Ease in Lake and Lime (less than 1 ball each) with Maize used for the hems and trim.

Stripe Sweater Finished 03

Amy asked in the comments if the buttons were purely decorative. They are not. I think that babies have disproportionately large noggins, so I created an opening along the sleeve edge, and crocheted loops. Hopefully giving the neck opening a little extra room to accommodate for baby heads.

Sweet Pea Hat Blue 01

I also made a hat to match. This is the Sweet Pea Hat by Susan Anderson. I ordered it from her now closed webstore a few years ago. But she now offers it through her blog. I highly recommend it.

It's all wrapped and ready to be mailed. I hope it gets there before the baby outgrows it. Or I just hope that it fits the baby at some point.
