FO: Moss Stitch Cardigan and Fan and Feather Bonnet
I'm so naughty, waiting till the absolute last second to give someone their gift. I finally finished the cardigan yesterday and whipped up the bonnet last night. They are for my old sewing teacher who is having her baby any day now. It's a relief to have it done and in the mail!

The cardigan pattern is the one I always use, the Daisy Cardigan in the pattern directory here on KH, however, I use the moss stitch the whole way through it.
The bonnet is actually courtesy of own very own Shandeh, I found out. I scrolled down the page and saw the picture and thought, "I know that face..." And sure enough! Thanks, Sandy, for the beautiful pattern!!!

What a beautiful set! I love the fabric that moss st produces, I find it difficult to do for an entire sweater but the result is worth the effort. I'm sure your sewing teacher will be dellighted.

Wow! You're just cranking out stuff left and right--and such beautiful specimens, too. Personally, I think you should take out the "new" from your moniker and just leave at "Insaneknitter," especially since you're a knitting wildfire!

These are indeed lovely. Bet she'll be thrilled.
