sweet

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!

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

Kara said...

ooh, the baby frills are just delightful. So cute. And how lucky is it that you have a new baby on deck to get it? Perfect timing.

The tag is such a great touch/

Elinor said...

Wow, I love your edges. Both the neckline and the ruffles look so professional. What's your secret?

Elinor said...

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.

Betsy said...

Beautiful work!

opportunityknits said...

aww, it's so sweet, especially those tiny ruffles. I love the first photo of the cardi with the little ribbon on the yellow hanger.

It's so lovely. I guess the person that gets this will be very happy. Have a great day.
Love Elzie
