Frugal times call for frugal gifts - even if they are hand knit. The family down the street has a new baby and before he got too big I wanted him to have a hand knit sweater, The Baby Albert sweater by Sally Melville is just the right choice. Easy knitting for me and style to boot, this seamless sweater will keep little Ryan toasty around the house as he learns to crawl and sport with his brothers. I used 2 skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease Worsted in Wheat - it didn't even cost $10.00. It is rugged enough for those boys who's dads want them to look "like a boy" and precious enough for all the rest!
