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.
