I've been feeling a bit, um, underwhelmed by a couple of the projects I've got on the needles. They're not bad projects and I know that I'll finish them eventually but they didn't exactly inspire me to knit. What I have been wanting to knit are baby and toddler clothes. My stash has been a nice source of creativity since the big re-organization so I dug in and found some baby cashmerino I bought to knit the Little One a cardigan so I cast on and am loving it. It's the Playful Stripes Cardigan by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting (she also has a podcast) and it's the perfect blend of simple and fun. The baby cashmerino is incredibly soft and springy and I'm progressing quickly enough that my interest isn't lost.
Special thanks to Rose who gifted me the pattern; it's exactly what I need to get inspired again!
