I finished my Little Pine Tree Cardigan a couple of days ago. Well, aside from the buttons. I wet blocked the finished piece, and the stupid thing still isn’t dry! Once I sew the buttons on, I’ll post pictures and deets. 🙂
Because the Little Pine Tree Cardigan came out huge, I decided to try knitting another (smaller) cardigan. I’m using a very basic pattern I found on Ravelry and some absolutely beautiful Manos del Uruguay yarn. The yarn is a kettle dyed silk/merino blend, probably isn’t baby-friendly, and my guess is it’ll pill like a mofo. It’s very nice to touch, though. I picked it up from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar in Center City, Philadelphia on a whim. The colorway, 3104, reminds me of autumn, and since I’m having an autumn baby, I deemed it a must-have.
So far I am pleased to report that the sweater is turning out much smaller than the previous one. It will definitely fit a newborn.
