One Baby Cardi Done!
Yea! One baby cardi with buttons done! It's so cute and its blocking in the laundry room right now. I figure if I have to dry my clothes I may as well put that radiant heat to use right?
The particulars: Needle Size US 8 and 6, circular for the body and DPNs for the sleeves.
Yarn: Cascade Sierra 80% pima cotton, 20% wool, 191 yards/skein
Pattern: Jimmy Beans Wool "Sweater Gift Set" free pattern
Started Sunday, finished tonight.
This turned out really cute, but there are things that I would change if I knit this again. Even though I went from a size 8 needle to a size 6 for the neckband, sleeve cuffs, and button bands, I'm not happy with how they turned out.I also discovered that I'm not really all that happy knitting cardigans. If I decide to use this pattern again I'm going to do the math and figure out how to knit this sucker in the round. No baby cardi, just a bitty sweater.
I start my Kristi baby knitting tonight! :)
