My young friend Amy's baby is due in August. She and her husband know if it's a boy or girl but are keeping that secret until baby is born. I wanted to knit a couple of cardigans/hoodies for her and asked for colours. Navy and grey were two of the colours mentioned so here is the cardigan I finished a couple of days ago.
I haven't knitted for a while and decided to buy some new baby patterns. I have real problems with spacial awareness and found the knitting instructions hard to follow. I knitted the Left front OK but when it came to the Right front and the pattern just said "Reverse instruction of Left front" I got in a mess. Fortunately one of my Patchwork friends who is an expert knitter came to my aid and I managed to finish it. Don't think I'll be using this pattern again though!
However, I was pleased with how it turned out. A hooded jacket is next - a different pattern - which I hope I can cope with.
