Baby sweater


I had such fun knitting this little baby sweater for my friend Deb, who is expecting a baby girl ANY DAY(!) now. I used a pattern from a Knit It magazine from last year, and picked up the yarn at Arcadia Yarns in Chicago when I visited there over the summer. On the needles now: a cabled hat using the washable worsted wool from Moda Dea and the Cutaway Cardigan from Chic Knits, which seems to be taking forever. Since I am knitting it in Knit Picks Merino Style: strawberry red, I had hoped it would be done to wear for the Christmas holidays, but no way! I'm still having elbow pain, so I have slowed down my knitting somewhat. But not altogether, of course!
