Nautical Baby Sweater

I was totally inspired by this sweater on this post and then again on this post on the Yarn Harlot's blog a few months ago.  It is just SOOOO cute.

So I downloaded the pattern, Puerperium Cardigan from Ravelry, and then ordered my yarn - Shine Worsted from Knit Picks (cream and navy).

I've been plugging away at it for the last few weeks - in between MANY other projects.  Then it sat in my yarn bowl for about a week, just needing buttons sewn on.

So, yesterday I got busy and within 30 minutes it was done!  I'm sooooo happy with how it turned out.  It's nautical (like our baby room theme), and it's soft, and it's comfy and cozy.  I can't wait to see our little baby in it!

Here are a few detail shots: 


And you know I had to "model" it on my 33 week baby bump.  :)

Love it! Now you've got me wanting to try this sweater. Got the pattern downloaded, now to look for yarn. :)

Thanks Sheila!
I highly recommend the Shine Worsted yarn from KP. It is really soft but a nice, heavy weight. My daughters have sweaters from this yarn too and it machine washes/dries like a dream with no pilling. I'm using it for another baby sweater - see Thurs blog. :)
