Baby E's coral cardigan (by bookgrl)

This weekend had a deliciously fall-like temperament and I loved every moment of it. Crisp blue skies, cooler temperatures, a sweet ocean breeze gently blowing in…so, so wonderful. The weather had me thinking about fall clothes and the fact that E has all these delightful little sweaters and knitted things made for her by all my wonderful internet friends. (Thank you, internet friends!) And she also has this sweet little sweater that I knit for her back before she was born. I worked on it every week at our prenatal group meetings and watched it, and my belly, grow every week. The yarn is an incredibly soft, though slightly impractical, silk/cotton blend. It was a pleasure to knit with and I hope it will be a pleasure for E to wear! The buttons were purchased during my birthday trip to Boston. (I dragged my family into Windsor Button on the recommendation of my Flickr peeps. They were quite patient and happily indulged my button-seeking ways.)

It is a simple little pattern – a top-down, raglan sleeved asymmetrical cardigan with a moss stitch edging. I knit mine a bit longer than the pattern called for and after birthing my tall baby I am glad I did! With any luck, it will fit her throughout the fall. The luscious yarn makes it special without being precious – no ruffles and fussiness here. I look forward to knitting more wee clothes for my wee one!
