My new project is the Jasmine Cardigan for Franny’s we-hope-it’s-a-girl bump. It’s a Louisa Harding pattern from her “Natural Knits for Babies and Moms” book (Interweave). It’s pink right now, so here’s to hoping:)
The LYS didn’t have an organic equivalent to the recommended dk 80% wool; 20% cotton yarn. I am keeping it math simple, and went for a non-organic sub in the same gauge: Sirdar’s Baby Bamboo. It’s given to split stitches, but is otherwise very easy on the hands. I’ve knitted up the back, and am working on the sleeves:
So tiny – I’m making it for 3 months. This is my first baby garment, so my fingers are crossed. She’s due in early June, so if this flops I’ll have time to whip up a cot blankie, right? I have to run but will post a pic of the sock, which is also new on my needles.
