A Little Something

Red Heart Strata, Baby Cardigan
When we were driving to the desert a couple of weeks ago, I needed an easy car-knit project for the trip. Most of the projects I have on-the-needles or hook right now involve concentration, reading and counting. So, I decided to pull out a skein of my Red Heart Strata in the wild "Fruity" colorway and knit a simple top-down baby cardigan (size 10 needles, worsted weight, stockinet stitch) for donation to Stitches From The Heart. I just finished the little sweater the other day. I still have to add a tie or button. The colors are really bright and I love it......for a baby, that is. Not sure what I'll do with the 10 other skeins I have of this yarn....maybe a baby afghan?
Speaking of top-down cardigans, I read on her blog that crochet designer, Robyn Chacula is designing an interesting cardigan...it's kind of a Fair Isle Granny look. I like it alot....gives me some interesting ideas! Thanks, Robin....this would be an excellent stash buster!
