Well, certainly for babies smaller than any I am likely to produce. This cardigan would probably fit a 7lber, but given that Teddy was 9lb 9oz at birth, it seems unlikely that I will produce such a dainty little thing this time round (especially given the size of the bump at 34 weeks), despite the fact that I'll be having a C-section, and therefore not be enjoying/enduring the whole 42 weeks of pregnancy that I did last time (I won't go into details about the reason for the c-section for fear of alarming the child-free among us. Suffice to say that natural, drug free hypnobirthing also sometimes goes a teeny bit wrong).
I refuse to frog it though - far too cute - and am banking on one of my many, many pregnant friends to produce a small baby this time round.
I know the colour is perhaps a bit boyish, but it's such a lovely delicate shade of blue, with that sweet green edging, and I figure I'll just add pink buttons if it ends up being for a girl. The yarn is Madelinetosh sock yarn, bought back here.
The cardigan pattern is this sweet one (what newborn doesn't need the addition of pockets to their cardigans?), and the hat one is here. I definitely see more of both of these patterns in my future. Although possibly in larger sizes. Feel free to take a look at the Ravelry project pages for hat and cardigan.
Incidentally, have you noticed what good headway I'm making through the enormous stash of yarn I bought a few weeks back? Sometimes I find knitting fits into my life better than quilting, thanks to its more portable nature, and we are definitely having one of those stages at the moment. I'm actually getting concerned about needing to ration what I have left, lest the rate of knitting overtakes the rate of bank balance growth (which is tortoise-like at the best of times).
