A Cardi for a Sweet Girl

Long overdue, I made a cardigan for my sweet niece. I regret that I didn't make it bigger. It fits her perfectly now, I fear she will outgrow it next week very quickly. So it is when knitting for toddlers.

The busy, little peanut was a cooperative model. She's quite used to having a camera pointed in her direction.

The yarn is Spud & Chloe Sweater in grass & turtle. The adorable turtle buttons are from M&J Trimming. (Sorry I can't find them on their website, I picked them up in the store.) The pattern is almost ready to go out to test knitters. It should be ready  for publication in about 6 weeks.

On a related topic, I couldn't resist making a jumbo stocking for my niece. Her parents report that they had a good time filling it.

There are only cryptic notes on this one. I cast on and knit a top down sock in bulky yarn, on jumbo needles. Stripes and stitch patterns were added, making it up as I went along. The name is stitched on at the end with a chunky yarn that I had on hand. I'm not crazy about the added bulk it gives the top of the stocking. Next time I'll use a thinner yarn for the duplicate stitch. I just couldn't resist the way that acid green jazzed up the neutral colors. Added bonus, this project was completely knit from the stash.
