Sara and Vivian
Baby Vivian showed up on a rainy and cold night to the WeHo SnB. She's quite a little trooper. Her Mom and Dad, Sara and Richard, brought their sleeping baby upstairs to our regular meeting place. When Vivian woke up she had this look on her face, "Where am I? It was warm and quiet when I fell asleep. What is this noisy, wet place? Who are all these chicks with needles and hooks?" Needless to say, she was slightly dazed and confused when I made Sara put the little green sweater on her. However, Vivian rose to the occasion, turned on her fierce model look and was a perfect sweater girl. The cardigan is slightly large on her, but that's okay, she'll grow into it!
I liked making this baby sweater so much, that I finished up a similar one using Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn in the "Carnival" colorway. I just have to crochet a button hole and sew on an orange button. The cute rounded yoke pattern shows up much better using plain yarn versus variegated. For my next one (I'm on a roll here) I'm going to use colors similar to the Tulip Baby Cardigan, changing colors between the garter stitch rows of the yoke. I'm still working on translating this pattern for a big girl sweater for me. I came across this website and I think it might help.
Earlier that day, I gave my co-worker, Aileen, the scarf I knitted for her birthday. She looks great in it! I'm pleased with my yarncomplishments for the week!Aileen
