Baby Cardigan

I'm really happy with the way this turned out. The pattern is called First Flower from the book The Alchemy of Color Knitting by Gina Wilde that I had checked out of the library. I cast on right away with some washable wool yarn I had in my stash and finished it before the book was due (except for hemming and buttons). It is knit from the top down in one piece with picot edging and three silver heart buttons. I hope it will fit you know who.

I Went on Vacation and the Only Thing I Knit Was This

A simple dishcloth. On a recent road trip, ten days were spent zig zagging across the State of California and Oregon without much knitting to show for it. I really can't knit while riding in the car, especially the roads we took. We drove to Kings Canyon, Lassen and Crater Lake National Parks, all with very high and winding roads. Not conducive to knitting. Actually, I knit one dishcloth going north (given away) and another going south. Not even a dent in my stash.
