A friend of mine is due with twins in September and, of course, I wanted to get her a special gift that wouldn't be like all the other baby gifts she would receive. In my Etsy search, I discovered Arrets Place - a wonderful little shop that carries reversible baby afghans, beautifully crocheted baby sweaters along with adult items such as crocheted wraps and hats (among lots of other things).
Since I wanted coordinating sweaters, I asked Arrets Place for a special order. Not only was she willing to make the sweaters, but she also searched for the cutest buttons she could find - note the trucks on the blue and the little cupcake buttons on the pink - they are absolutely adorable!
The workmanship is also excellent. Both items are wonderfully soft and the colors are perfect - I didn't really want the typical baby pastel colors and these worked out wonderfully. I can't wait to give them just to hear the oohs and aahhs!
On a completely different note, my peonies (see post below) have bloomed and, as promised, I took some pictures.
