I’ve been on a tear this past week to get a gift in order for a brand new arrival.
This is the Autumn Leaves baby cardi. Sweet, hey? It took me only about 5 days – perfect, since I was on a deadline, scheduled to greet the new little person this weekend. I know, the buttons are maybe a little too funky for this delicate knit, but I couldn’t resist them.
I made a little hat to match. However, the hat size is clearly more suitable for an older baby – not sure what’s up with that. I knit to gauge with both projects. I won’t sweat it, though. It’ll be worn eventually! I knit both projects in Frogtree Meriboo left over from my Lily cardigan. It’s a nice, soft yarn for baby items.
After that little interlude, I can move on with my life. I’ve got two cardigans in the planning stages, and I’m going to start a lace project as soon as I can get off my backside and wind the yarn.
Anyone else knitting these days?
