Since I can't seem to ever finish knitting a pair of socks, I am puting my sock yarn stash to good use. I had posted about this work in progress cardigan a while ago, but it has been sitting here with only one sleeve. I think that I have problems knitting things in pairs. I get bored and move onto new things. I finally picked it up and finished it. Perhaps, the gestation ticker (on the right of the blog) is putting some pressure on me. The pattern is as easy as the name suggest. It's all worked in one piece and there is no seaming. I love the yarn, the color and how it turned out. I made the 6 month size and I still have yarn leftover. A pair of booties are coming soon.Instead of knitting 3 rows of garter stitch, I purled 3 rows for the end of the sleeve. I also picked up 14 stitches for the sleeves because the number on the pattern didn't seem right.
I recently bought some baby sized hangers at Target. It's so cute seeing the baby clothes hanging in the closet.
