I may have a problem

Hi, my name's Liz, and I can't stop knitting baby clothes.

Striped cardi

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4 ply
Needles: 2.75mm and 3mm circs

I've even started knitting baby clothes from yarn that I fully intended to use to knit stuff for myself.


I bought this gorgeous Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4 ply with the intention of making another tank top for myself but I just couldn't resist this beautiful baby cardigan "Sally" by Martin Storey from the poetically named Jaeger book JB29.

Get this, I am the only person knitting this on Ravelry. That's unheard of in my experience!

Do you want to see the back. Yeah, you know you want to really.

Sally back

I would have preferred not to trap the floats but babies have little fingers that get easily tangled so I've got to keep them nice and short, especially on the sleeves.

I can stop any time I want to, you know...I'll just see if I can finish the back before going to bed.

Does that make it a Ravelwack? Hehe. It's very purty indeed!
