Satisfying That Itch

I told you the other day once the gloves were finished that I could cast on anything and everything I wanted. I’m not crazy, not diagnosed yet anyway, so I calmly cast on one necessary project. The little stocking recipient Leah is going to be a big sister some time in the next three weeks. They never did find out if it will be a boy or a girl but I believe every child should be welcomed with a sweater. I grabbed a skein of Bernat Softee Baby in flannel, kind of a tonal pale gray, with the intention of casting on another Milo. In the process of looking at other baby sweaters knit in this yarn I found the Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker. It looks like the perfect brand new baby sweater. I’ve done 8 rows and I couldn’t be happier. It will be a race to see if I finish before the wee one arrives.

  2. I completely agree that newborns should be wrapped in a homemade sweater and have made several Puerperium Cardigans . It’s a lovely project — here are two:

  3. Oh I think you’ll finish in plenty of time.
    And I’ve been told that grey is the “new” color for babies!

    The Puerperium Cardigan is my go-to baby knit when I don’t have time to knit a blanket. It’s a great project!
