Comments: Wow! What a great little pattern (free!) and I love love love how it looks in this yarn. I was a little worried that the shiny apple green would not shout “little baby boy!” (as my brother may prefer for his soon to be born boy), but Matt agrees that babies can wear whatever color they want. :)
The Nostalgia yarn knits up into a lovely spongy fabric and the label promises machine washability (line dry). The little shiny bit does like to get snagged, but as long as I paid attention, it wasn’t an issue. Once knit up it seems much less snagable. (Yeah, snagable is a word. Sure.)
The cardigan should have little string closures either made of the yarn or ribbon, but I think I may just leave it without – Perfect for the casual baby on the go. What do you all think?
The other day I got my Ravelry invite and let me tell you, it’s super. If you don’t know what Ravelry is, go to the site, check it out, and sign up. It took them a few weeks to get to my name on the waiting list, but it’s worth it. I’ve been having a lot of fun with the site adding my projects and looking at other people’s. My user name is Alyssa – feel free to friend me. :)
