Happy Baby Blues
With days to spare before the shower, I’ve finished another Baby Soft Cardigan. This one is for my friend Steph (I did the flowers for her wedding a year ago May) who is expecting a boy in August. Since I knew in advance that this arrival was to be a boy, I went old-school and choose blue for the sweater. I debated trying another baby sweater pattern, but I was so happy with how Issac’s Baby Soft Cardigan came out that I decided to stick with a winner.
Pattern: Baby Soft Cardigan from Knitter’s Book of Yarn by Clara Parks, pattern by Jennifer Hagan.
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton in “Periwinkle” colorway and a small amount of Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton in “Sand” colorway
Notes: As before, great pattern. Fun to knit with very rewarding results. The only change I made this time was to crochet the edging (recommended by Clara in the errata for the book) in a contrasting color which I think adds a nice little zing.
Now I’m going to push my luck a bit and attempt to knit a matching hat….I’m sure it won’t be a problem….Piece of cake…..After all, I have nothing else to do these days…..Like knit birthday socks that will soon be overdue…..Or clean the house for a wedding shower I’m hosting in a few days…..Or go to work……Or sleep……Nah. No problem.
