Just off the needles is another Sweetheart Cardigan in Araucania Ranco Solid, this time in pink. It’s for friends in the Bay Area that are expecting their first baby any day now.
This will obviously not fit her for some time, but I have a theory. At baby showers, mothers-to-be get lots of sweet little outfits for the newborn. But very soon the child has outgrown all those gifts and the parents need to start shopping. Wouldn’t it be nice to have something that fits after the first couple months?? (Well, it makes sense to me, plus, I absolutely love this pattern and I knit it in the smallest size which will fit a 12-24 month-old, so I’m sticking to my theory!)
