A Gift for Baby Boy

This gift is for a very special baby boy. We met his mommy when she was 15 years old and started visiting our church. Many times we gave her a ride home after church and then after she got her driver's license she was often part of the group that hung out at our house. She even introduced us as her "church parents" at her wedding. She and her husband are now expecting their first baby and Anna and I had a wonderful time deciding what to send.

The little white romper has been waiting for a special baby and Anna whipped up some booties to match!

I have now officially handed the knitting over to Anna. I told her that I will let her be the knitter in the family and that I will stick to smocking!

*The romper is made from pattern #103 and is trimmed with purchased Whipped Stitched Piping.

Hi, Michie,
Your little boy suite is to die for. When I finish the OFB sew-a-long, I am going to make this! Absolutly adorable!!
I have a question.....on your Jan. 3, 2010 post "More about the bishop pattern," the bishop you have photographed is amazing!! My question...would you please tell me the floss brand and colors you used for this particular bishop? The white with these colors are so beautiful and I MUST copy this exactly, if you don't mind. My husband and I are going on a driving trip from Daphne, AL to the Grand Canyon and this is the PERFECT project to take to keep me occupied the entire drive!!
Thanks and I LOVE your blog!!
