The Almost-Weekend Baby Cardigan
This is by far going to be my new go-to pattern when I have a new baby to knit for! It's the Puerperium cardigan, which is designed for under ten pounds. I made it for an old friend who had her third baby a week ago. (So yeah....I'd better get that in the mail!)
It was almost going to be purple but then I found this mystery skein in my yarn stash that I liked better. And the heart shaped buttons are just darling. They're also the reason why it's not the "Weekend Baby Cardigan" because I drew the limit at midnight on Sunday/Monday to finish this! Then, in typical Crafty Mama fashion, I let it sit for a week, just putting on buttons tonight. Actually, that's pretty impressive. Things like weaving in ends, blocking and sewing buttons usually take way longer than a week around here!
