off the needles

The baby cardigan that I was working on for Ian is finished and ready to wear. It turned out sooooo darling.

I made it in the 3-6 month size, but it already fits him! Of course, Ian is a big boy (he was 9lbs 7 oz at birth and now is around 14 lbs). I also didn't take the time to knit up a swatch before I started, so it may have turned out a bit smaller than the one in Essential Baby. But I love it anyway. If it doesn't get cool enough for Ian to wear before he grows out of it I may give it away.

Or then again, I may just hold onto it. :)
The yarn is some soft cotton stuff that I saved when I unraveled one of my old ones (and has been used for so many baby things already).

I'm always stunned when I see beautiful knitting and crochet work. I like to crochet and I do a little bit of knitting, but nothing like this! It's gorgeous! I'm sure Ian will look adorable in it.
BTW, it's always a good idea to double a baby's age as far as size. For instance, a lot of six-month-olds will actually wear a size one. However, I'm not sure how this translates to knitting! Just be sure to get at least one picture of Ian in his sweater, okay?
