Kimono and Shadow

I finally finished the knit baby kimono that I've been working on.  I think it came out pretty cute.  I don't love it, but it'll do. There's just something about the shape I wish was different...maybe the sweater a little longer, and the sleeves a little narrower next time.  Anyway, here it is...the Little Pumpkin Baby Kimono, perfect for the season:


It's got a cute little tie on the inside:


And I found this tiny wooden toggle button for the outer closure:


Oh, and it's Shadow Shot Sunday, so here are my latest.  Going down?


Cast your own shadow over at Hey Harriet.

Aweeeee. The baby kimono is ridiculously cute and cozy looking. My brother and his wife are pregnant with their first child and I have been collecting vintage and homemade baby clothes for my future nephew. I'm going to be the most obnoxious auntie ever. :)

The kimono is adorable. I bet it'll look really cute on.

Maybe with raglan sleeves you may have liked it better? I dunno.

Great shadow photos. I think one sees so many neat photos while out and about with shadows but one needs to always carry the camera.
