FO: cardigan for my great-grandson
Hi!

Finished a baby boy cardigan for my Great-Grandson, due in June. Baby shower is May 7th.

Anyway, I used stash yarn...the same Rowan Calmer used for his Log Cabin blankie. The sweater is dark purple and yellow...although for the life of me...I couldn't force my camera to "see purple"! It isn't navy blue, but that's what the camera sees. Oy.

I knit a size 0-3 mo. It's a cotton blend, and in our area, you still need to put a sweater on in the evenings, except for August. This little sweater took 2 days. I didn't block it.





My Ravelry Folder, if you care to look.

Darling sweater, and I agree with JudyD, this boy will be the best dressed baby of the year.

It doesn't get cuter than a little sweater like that.

SO cute! I do see the purple in the second shot....I hate when my camera gives me "attitude" like that!
