Little Cardi






I've had lots of things on the needles lately, and finally, I'm beginning to get some of them finished.  This little cardi (raveled here) had to take precedence over all my other UFO's as I needed it done in time for a baby shower last Sat.  This is an easy and fast little top down pattern (only seaming is under the arms - woot!).   I used some Bernat Cottontots I had left from this blanket.  I think I would have liked it better made up in a nice soft tweedy brown or gray, but I was trying to be frugal and use up stash yarn, so rather predictible baby blue it is.  Anyway, it's nice soft yarn and machine washable -- of course.  I made the 6 month size, and hopefully, little D will grow into it about the time our weather begins to cool off.   Actually, I'm thinking it looks a little big --- more like a 9 - 12 month size?  Oh well, as EZ says, babies grow, so it will fit eventually.

Have a lovely week,

♥ ♥ ♥

Hi B.,
Well, you're so kind to say so, but it's not perfect at all! But, that's one thing about knitting, isn't it, you learn something with every new project? At least I sure do ;-).
