in threes: a baby cardigan; begin!

A friend is having a baby, due at the end of the month!  I already made the baby girl a blanket but I wanted to make something for her to wear, too, so I decided to try the in threes baby cardigan (it costs money but it is easy and works up quickly).

I have a lifeline inserted before the arm holes were formed just in case I mess up and have to rip back.  The Dark Horse Yarns’ Fantasy yarn is a ridiculously soft worsted yarn — I wish I had enough to make me a sweater out of it too!  Might have to order some…

The color was hard to capture, it looks more accurate here:

I’m using the technique for a neater edge along the button band, as you can see there, as well.

I kind of want to make some little crocheted pastel flowers to sew onto the front.  I might do that if I have time but I do want this to be complete by the baby’s arrival!

That’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!  See you soon!
