(February) Baby Sweater on two needles by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Having knit the adult version for myself, I thought this would be the perfect use for my first skein of "useable" handspun. I ran out of yarn shortly after this point - I think I cast on too many stitches under the arms, but never mind. I have found some matching cream yarn in my stash and I've added a garter stitch band at the bottom and will do the same on the arms. It *should* be an ok garment when I've finished.... however I'm not sure it will be good enough to gift to the other knitter who it was intended for!
Knit in a sock weight bamboo blend yarn (Caber from the Yarn Yard) this should be a perfect summer/autumn cardigan for baby Laura. I just adore the vintageness of this pattern - in fact I am contemplating knitting one for me in an aran weight - just like the February Lady Sweater. I was undecided about sleeves for this one - but after consulting with various mothers of small people it seems that sleeves are most definitely in order. Knit on 2.5mm needles, this is a labour of love, but hopefully I will get it finished before this little girl is too big for it.
