FO: Puerperium Cardigan

My husband's cousin just had her second baby, and what better thing to shower her with than this cute, masculine cardigan that was on the brink of being finished anyways. That's why it's great to knit baby things ahead of time (even without anyone in mind), because if you're like me...and you have startitis, it makes for a quick completion when you hear about a baby ready to be welcomed into the world. Soon.

Project: Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker
Baby Size: 0-3 months
Made for: Walter
Yarn: 1.25 skeins of Bernat Satin Sport Ombres, colorway "Seashore."
Needles: size US7 circular and dpns
Start date: February 22nd, 2012
Finish Date: June 25th, 2012
Although it's already summertime, restaurants and air conditioned homes make for chilly babies, and this should be perfect because it's just acrylic; it shouldn't be itchy or too warm.

Pretty cute, huh? I'll have to knit one of these again. An acquaintance of mine is at the beginning of her pregnancy...
