New Project

Dalegarnfalk

It’s baby time.

I know of three that are due next month so, it’s time to start working on a baby shower gift that needs to be done withing the next few weeks.

The project will be the Harvard Square Cardigan from Knitting for Baby. The designer, Kristin Nicholas has a picture of it on her website.

The one in the book was done in Wollywasch but I had no luck in finding it in the specified colors.  In fact, I had a hard time finding  a good online source.

At first, Debbie Bliss DK merino seemed like a good substitue but unfortunately her green is just too dark.

While searching for a better green, I came across Dalegarn Falk. It has all the right colors, just a little brighter than I was initially hoping to find. Since the  sweater is for a baby,  I think it should be ok.

I was toying with the idea of using a lighter green, hence the odd ball of Schachenmayer Nomotta Extra under the Falk.  After getting a quick opinion from my husband, the darker green won out.
