Some people, women mostly, can grow a baby in their tummies in nine months. It's pretty miraculous isn't? I haven't done that.
No, I knit a sweater for a baby in nine months. That's basically the same right?
I knit the baby cardigan for Inspector Climate's best friend who had a baby in January. We didn't know when I started the sweater whether it was a girl or a boy. So we went with vibrant red - also, I'm not a big fan of gender specific colours anyway!
This pattern was a challenge. It was complicated. Which basically means, that I had to fully concentrate on what I was knitting 100% of the time. This is only awkward because it meant I couldn't knit and watch tv or have a conversation or day dream. And the amount of times I had to unpick it...I don't even want to talk about it.
Just to see how little it really is, made for 6-12 months, I put it next to a sweater that my mom made me. Aw.
What are you like when you start a project - knitting or otherwise - do you enjoy the process or manically try to complete it?
As part of my life list I have knit a cardigan by myself - does a baby cardigan count? I think so.
