A new baby gift...

I wanted to share a recent knitting project. This is the Easy baby Cardigan from Joelle Hoverson's book, More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. I made this sweater for my friend Taryn's new baby girl. I got this book as a Christmas gift an I just new I would have to make the sweater for her as soon as I saw it.It was so much fun to knit and all in one piece, this is the second knitting project that I ever actually blocked. Blocking makes seaming much easier, I have to say and it is so simple too. Totally worth the effort. I will come back to this project again when there is another new baby to craft for.

*** I would also like to say thanks so much for all of the kinds words about my Illustrations. I can't tell you how much they mean to me. Thank you all so much for the encouragement you give me , it is priceless.***

Hmm...didn't I hear you mention this somewhere yesterday? It looks great! I'm waiting for that book to come in at the library any day and may give this pattern a try!
