For A Baby
A sweater for a baby. Not a baby sweater. This is for an international baby, who will join my family this month. The sweater is a 6-12 month size, but looks a little oversized to me. I hope that it will still fit when he gets to the US. This sweater is from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits, which, to me, is like a Joy ofCooking for baby stuff. One of those books that has every type of baby thing, and most of the designs are really cute. I was itching to knit this one. It's in Cascade 220 Superwash, in a color that the Cascade rep describes as "hipster Gold." Apparently all the cool kids like this color. The only modification I made was in the center cable on the sleeves, I made one that would more closely match the one on the center body.
Spent the day running errands, and doing things in the apartment. As always, I did not accomplish everything I wanted to. That's the story these days.
