Sweaters for Spring Baby Showers

In the spring--when the flowers are blooming and temperatures are rising--thoughts of cozy sweaters seem about as far from our minds as snow.  But spring baby showers are actually the best time to give handknit baby sweaters as gifts.

Think of it this way: If a mom-to-be is showered in May or June, she is probably due in June, July, or August.  That means that her baby will be about six months old in the dead of winter--when a little sweater will be much appreciated--and perfect for a little one making a first appearance at day care or a play group. 

One way to bridge the warm weather/cold weather gap is to give a sweater with happy spring colors and playful shapes--like this pink sweater with bobble trim.  Come winter, it will be a breath of fresh air!
