Blessing Outfit

I decided to take on the ambitious project of making a blessing outfit for the baby. Since I don't have the necessary means to actually sew an outfit, I decided to crochet one. I have been searching for something that was not feminine. Aaron feels that if it's made out of yarn, it must be girly. I found something I think will work.
I have completed everything on the sweater except sewing on the buttons. The sweater is the first thing that I made from this pattern and it is not exactly perfect. If I have time and the will power, and if it just really gets to me that its not perfect, I may redo it. The overalls have turned out great. I still have to sew on the suspenders. There are the pictures of what I have done so far.:
This is a picture of what the stuff is suppose to look like. I am in the middle of making the hat and then I will start on the booties.When I am done with all the clothing items I am going to start on this quilt. I am a little scared, but I am learning so much with doing all these projects. They have been frustrating at times, but I really feel the reward of accomplishing some out of my comfort zone.

You are amazing! These look absolutely perfect, and you're putting my VERY MEDIOCRE crocheting skills to shame. (I made a leper bandage once at a Relief Society activity, but it would have to be for a lop-sided blind leper for it to have worked. It was THAT BAD.)

Loving that you've found something you're so wonderful at! Congrats!

What the crap?!? I can barely crochet a straight chain, let alone go from a blanket to a blessing outfit. You amaze me! Rock-on girly!

I'm totally impressed. I've just been thinking that I need to take my crocheting up to another level and actually try something more challenging than a washcloth or an afghan. You are an inspiration.
