This Easy Baby Cardigan started out as a Christmas gift for my youngest nephew but fell by the wayside what with the move and all the other last minute Christmas knitting I was working my way through. I've actually knit most of it twice since in my earlier haste I had messed up one of the sleeves at a point where it was joined to the body so both sleeves and most of the body had to come out to fix it.
But the upside was that I got lots of practice with the magic loop method which I used for the sleeves and it was a good lesson in perserverance.
I used Misti Alpaca's Tonas Pima Silk, "strawberry". The overdyed bits in this red skein did fluff up after I washed it which was a relief -- no more crunchy bits of thinner looking yarn.
I was making it in the "next size up" for my growing nephew so thankfully it will still fit just fine even with a late delivery.
Feels good to finally have it finished. Anyone else tidying up projects from last Christmas?
