After more than two years, I made a cute thing

Well that was quite the little hiatus. I have no idea why I haven't picked up a hook, needle, or shuttle in the last two plus years, but the imminent arrival of a friend's baby forced me back into the game.

She didn't want a blanket, so we decided on a hoodie instead, made in neutral colors because they don't want to know the sex of the kid until it arrives. I picked purple and cream.

Hello pile of stitches. Long time no see. 
 I took my time with it, so it took me a little over a week.

My ottoman, looking like a disaster zone, what with the yarn, scissors, pieces, instructions, and separate online instructions because the original instructions were not so great. 
And here it is! Looking a little fuzzy and glowy because it was a seriously crappy day outside and the lighting was not great. 
And a fuzzy shot of the super cute buttons I found. Adorable!
