Zooey’s first cardigan is finished! It’s the Tiny Rocky Coast by Hannah Fettig. I made the 6 month size and added some length to the sleeves and body, as well as some width to the collar so she could hopefully wear it for a couple of months. She’s only 3 months, but it already fits pretty well. I’m learning that baby sizes can vary widely.
I struggled to get a picture before she started to drool all over the bow and sweater. She’s a well-hydrated baby. I loved knitting this sweater. Tiny knits are satisfying since they fly by so quickly. I used Colinette Jitterbug in Elephant’s Daydream. I went down one needle size for gauge.
I can’t wait to make an adult version for myself. I chose this color for myself. It’s difficult to tell if it will coordinate with hers at all, since it’s a bit of a guess how it will look in person, but I figured I’d be wearing mine much longer than she will wear hers, so I should pick something that I’m really into. It will be my NaKniSweMo project this year. I don’t know if I will finish it in a single month since my knitting time is interrupted by baby time, but since I did this last year in sock weight yarn, I’ll cut myself some slack if I don’t finish.
I’ll have a finished Socktober pair tomorrow even if I have to stay up tonight and finish them. Luckily, I’m ready for the final inch or so of ribbing, so it should be easy to do.
