Yarn Along - Baby Knit

So... yeah, I'm sharing yet another baby knit. Are you non-knitters just really, really sick of these posts?!
This week I'm excited to show you this little gem, the "In Threes: A Baby Cardigan" knit up in uber soft and smooshy Malabrigio in the Ravelry Red colorway. You can see my Rav. notes here.

My husband went out of town recently and since he wasn't home for me to cuddle with in the evenings, I really focused on this project and finished it in less than 24 hours. It knit up so quickly and I think that's because it was an enjoyable pattern - as the pattern indicates, it is written "with a basic design suited to a beginner, but with enough interest to entertain a more experienced knitter."

One note I made to myself during this knit was that working with 100% wool during the summer isn't much fun - my hands kept getting really sweaty and the wool kept pulling as a result.

One book that's been on my nightstand for the past month (I only read a few pages at a time) is The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

Linking up to Ginny's Yarn Along - be sure to pop over to her blog to see more knitting goodness!

~Thank you for your comments!~

That is so cute! How good of a knitter do you have to be? I have just done simple things, like scarfs and blankets. I have that book. It is a great read. My favorite agreement is "It's not about you".
