Did You Guess?

I finished knitting this "thing" in March and had to wait till now to finish it and sew on the buttons because Baby S. remained a mystery until this past Sunday. Look at this! Can you even imagine what it will be? Anything useful?
Whatever is it?
It's amazing what a couple of seams and a few buttons can do! I didn't care for the look of the neck as finished, so I added an I-cord around it to soften the edge.
Surprise!
There was enough yarn left for a pair of matching booties using one of my favorite patterns. The sweater is Elizabeth Zimmerman's baby surprise sweater. It surely is surprising, isn't it? Hope they all fit you, Sophie!
A bonus

Very sweet ---- I know the new baby will feel snuggly-loved when she wears her new sweater and booties.

Hey Judy! Wow - who would've thought the knitted 'thing' could become such a cute little cardie for baby Sophie!! What a clever chook you are and how lucky Miss Sophie is to receive such a wonderful hand-knitted gift to keep her snuggly warm!! Bear hugs! KRIS
