WIP Wednesday 6/22
Meet the Hello Baby Cardigan, a free pattern by Susan B. Anderson, available on Spud Says. Once this little guy is blocked, I'll put the buttons on. I picked out some pretty generic buttons at the store last night, but I don't know if they're doing it for me. I created buttonholes all the way down the cardigan as opposed to just the three at the top garter section. This is my solution to balance the scales a little...I finished a girl sweater, so I also needed to finish a boy sweater.
IT'S A GIRL!!!
It's been a very anxious weekend for me. I've been so excited to find out whether we were having a boy or a girl that I've lost sleep. I've probably not slept well since at least Thursday or Friday and something I always thought was an anxious/stress-induced tick is really just any kind of excitement or anxiety (grinding/clenching my teeth). We are so happy to know we're having a girl. Now I can relax and enjoy all the things I want to knit!
Even though I knit this with the idea that it could go to a boy, I don't know any baby boys this size at the moment. So I think I'll try to do some duplicate stitching on the front of flowers or a bird or something and add some girly buttons and we're set to go. :)
What have you been working on lately?
