I've been sitting on a finished project for a while here, waiting until I gave it to the expectant mother-to-be, which I finally did this week.
And by "finished" I mean that it was all finished about a month ago except for sewing a snap and decorative button on the cardigan. I am a little ashamed of how long it took me to do that part.
This is the Love the Earth Baby Cardi, which is free online from Lion Brand Yarn. I used Cascade Yarns Pacific, which is a merino/acrylic blend. Purple, of course.
I made a hat too, because I'm convinced the baby will outgrow the sweater in about 10 seconds and possibly never get to wear it.
This is the Umbilical Cord Hat from Stitch 'n Bitch, made with the same yarn. It took almost no time at all. I've made this hat at least once before, but apparently pre-Ravelry and pre-blog because I don't see it in my projects anywhere. I'll have to remember to make it more because it's really a very cute little hat.
I finished this project and my shawl on the very same day, and that leaves me with only my Feathernest Raglan on the needles. That, too, is coming to an end fairly quickly. So I've been spending a lot of time looking at knitting patterns - I've almost forgotten how much fun that is! I'll post soon with a new project!
