It seems like I’m always knitting, but it’s usually something that’s not finished or that can’t be revealed right away. This week, that’s changed. A friend of mine just had twin girls and I felt the need to knit.
I managed to avoid second sweater syndrome and I made both of these little Jubilee Cardigans (by Cecily Glowik MacDonald) in a matter of weeks. It helped that both major parts of the sweater are simple enough to take to the park and work on from memory when the kids are playing.
The yarn is a DK superwash wool that’s been in the stash for quite some time. I didn’t have quite enough of the peach, so that’s why I went with a slightly darker border. I then did the same thing on the green sweater, thinking that at least that way it looks intentional. I’m quite happy with the result.
This is a sweet little pattern (I had it from Interweave’s 2010 Holiday Gifts edition) and I’d probably make another one. The 6 month size was a quick knit.
