Leaf and Lace Set

This set was knit for our next grandson, to be named Jonathan, who is due to arrive around the Chirstmas holidays. I found the pattern in one of my late Mom's stash, she had made the same pattern for one of my girl's, in a mint green. I used Bernat Baby and found it a nice yarn to work with. A added bonus is the free pattern on the back of the wrapper! 3 balls of yarn, same dye lot but 3 different patterns....how to add to my stash in 1 fell swoop! The baby shower is early December so I have a bit more time to find a nice navy sleeper!

Looks beautiful! I'm fairly new at knitting, but I hope to be able to knit such beautiful things like that one day!
