Children's Neckdown Cardigan - done!

Wow! Could it be that I've completed a child's sweater in less than two months? Yes! The neckdown cardi for my daughter is complete! Here is the picture:

Pattern: Knitting Pure and Simple Children's Neckdown Cardigan (#981)
Yarn: Filatura di Crosa Primo in lavender (6 balls)
Needles: Denise and DPNs in US9 and US6

I really thought I was going to run out of yarn for this project. The body of the sweater ate up FOUR balls of the yarn and I was in a panic. But the sleeves ended up using only two balls so I ended up with two extra (wristwarmers perhap?)

So next up are some small projects. I have done NOTHING with poor Branching Out so I'm going to start up the 10-minute rule mentioned on KR. I must work on it for ten minutes before working on anything else.

Aside from BO I still have my Cherry Tree Hill socks, a chemo cap that I've frogged three times and a pair of socks I'm starting for DD. I also wound a ball of Hempathy for the Everlasting Bagstopper so I may be starting that as well.

How sweet! I'm ordering the pattern today! I've done the pullover and the bolero, but I hadn't yet ordered the cardigan. I love their patterns.

What a sweet cardi! She will look as adorable as your son did in his sweater :-)
