sweet

Monday, May 21, 2007

I started this baby sweater last November. I finally finished it yesterday. The baby that it was being made for is now too big to wear this. However, we have friends that had their first baby, a sweet baby girl. This sweater will now go to her. I ordered this pattern and yarn, last summer, from Knot Another Hat. The pattern is a Sirdar, lace-edge cardigan which also has directions for a round neck cardigan. I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino , 4 balls for 6-12 month,size 3 needles.

I love to order from Knot Another Hat because it seems that the yarn arrives at your doorstep the moment after it is ordered. A good thing to remember during the summer months when the children are home. One less errand is always a good thing for us!

  7. Completely precious little sweater--and gifts being too small for babies before i even give them is the story of this knitter's life!

  15. OK, another comment. A question, rather. Do you block baby knits? If so, before seaming or after? I never know what to do with them.
