Stripes!

Pattern: Garter Stitch Cardigan from Knitting For Baby by Falick and Nicholas
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece
Needles: Size 7
Thoughts: Knitting For Baby, while it has many cute patterns, drives me crazy. It is geared too much for the novice knitter, writing instructions on how to knit in the middle of the pattern: k2 yo (that's knit two and then yarn over). Very irritating.

I did the 24 month size so it should be no surprise that it is a bit big on my little guy right now, but he's a growing boy! It's so hard to take photos of him now that he's a fast moving target, but he stayed still long enough for me to take these:

Aww, what a little man! Growing so fast! How can you stand it? The sweater is lovely and will be perfect in a few months (or weeks?) when he grows a bit more.

Oh, something about the 1-yr mark - babies suddenly turn into boys or girls. The sweater looks great!

That's one of my fav baby sweater designs! Great sweater!
The one in Knitting the easy way is very similar and has a matching hat--sooo cute. Will he wear a hat?

What a sweet baby! I love the colors that you chose. I can't wait to see him wearing it in person!
