Inspiration... From Stash!So last night I thought that I should take a quick look through the stash of baby pattern booklets and see if anything inspired me. A few years ago, Knit Happens stopped carrying Dale of Norway yarns, and the owner gifted me with several of the shop copies of the baby pattern booklets, including #124, which contains this cute pattern:
and cardigan version:
I'm thinking I will do the cardigan... but then I get all wishy-washy and think maybe the pullover, but using the cardigan charts. After all, I won't know the gender until the big day, so will it bother me to risk having the buttons on the "wrong" side? I'm going to use some stash sock yarn in cream and dark green, with the cream being the main color (because I have enough of it!). I'd better decide in the next few weeks, as I need to get swatching so I can bring this sweater to Scotland (along with some socks for S, just in case!)
So what do you guys think - is the Little Monster more of a cardigan or a pullover kind of baby?
That's from our ultrasound yesterday - it was saying "hi!" Or possibly "stop bothering me, I'm trying to sleep."
