Green for a day

I'm still working round after round on Andy's brown sweater but I've been flirting with a second project. I've even found a lovely cardigan pattern for my 16 skeins of Classic Elite Inca yarn but that's a little large. Andy would notice if I replaced his sweater with a Changling Sweater. It will have to wait.

Instead, I shopped my stash and found two skeins of lovely green (limestone) and one creamy (natural) Naturespun as well as my old standby baby gift - the Cottage Creations Babies and Bears cardigan sweater. Which child is the lucky one? Hmm. It may be my mission to cloth all babies in this sweater. I used to knit the more charming round-yoked baby cardigan from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac but that one got a cold reception the last time I made it (hours of work and an heirloom sweater mean nothing to non-knitters - see if I knit that boy anything else!) so I'll use the tried and true this time. Plus, I love this green!

Yeah, unfortunately non-knitters don't get it sometimes. Keeping it simple sounds like a good plan

Simple equals easy for me too!
