Grumpy Old Man sweater

Babies look adorable in Grumpy Old Man sweaters. You know the ones - cardigans with the big shawl collar? The one worn by guys that are always yelling "Hey you kids, get off my lawn!!" Those kinds of sweaters.
(Disclaimer - I've never actually heard anyone say "get off my lawn", but I do know my share of grumpy old men...)
I was between projects, and had this stash of Cascade hanging about, and A good friend I work with has a fairly new grandson (the first in the family), so I whipped this up. Stupidly, I forgot to take pictures of the finished sweater - picture this with wooden buttons on it.

Or better yet - just look at this!

Sorry for the bad iPhone pictures - blame the Grandfather! But it's a baby in a sweater that fits him! The parents andd grand parents are thrilled, and that's all that matters to me!
