Baby Sweater Anyone?

OK, so who's having a baby? I need someone to have a baby now because I have two baby sweaters sitting here and one more on needles - (not to mention the 3 Tulip Baby sweater kits I bought last month - I'm closing my eyes so you can't see me) and I really want to knit more of these February Baby sweaters because they are just cuter than I don't know what so someone needs to start having babies around me - OK? thank you

EZ February Baby Sweater
Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Cotton Patine
Needles: Knitpicks Options size 7

Very very cute - I love the color of this yarn but the yarn itself was not so fun to play with - very very splitty - I'm sad I don't like it because the muted color palette of the cotton patine is very appealing to me -

Also, look what the kids and I did - fun with KOOL-AID!

Looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream to me!

Here's my son's bright green dye job.

And my daughter's belated 4th of July yarn(it's in a tangled mess right now, waiting for the One Who Loves Untangling Yarn to work his magic)-

And finally, my first attempt at self-striping dyeing - I didn't quite get the sections long enough, and the yarn is very unevenly dyed due to my inexperience but it works for this little coat - Baby Albert from Sally Mellville's The Knit Stitch -

And so this ends as it began, with a plea for someone to provide a cute little bundle of joy to fill up these baby sweaters that seem to be the only things I can ever get finished.
