When you need to scratch an itch.

While waiting for my NaKniSweMo yarn to arrive, I had to cast on a couple of things to quell my knitting needs.

I finished the Garter Yoke Baby Cardi. It was a quick knit that I didn’t have to think about much. It’s still a bit big for Z right now, so I’ll show a modeled shot when it fits her a little better. I’m hoping it will make it into some of the colder parts of winter since she grows like a weed!

I don’t know if buttons in general are frowned upon for babies, but I made them really secure and I plan to check them often. Maybe I’ll try some velcro one of these days…

I also cast on a Vintage Pixie Cap with the leftover Jitterbug from Z’s Tiny Rocky Coast.

I weighed the yarn and I think I have plenty left. I’m nearly at the decreases, so she should be able to wear it in a couple of days. If this hat doesn’t get me through until my NaKniSweMo yarn arrives I’ll be casting on some plain stockinette socks to get me by.

  1. Oh, no, never velcro on anything knitted! The teeth will grab the yarn and it will get fuzzy and awful. I think buttons are fine as long as they’re sewn on tightly. If you’re worried, though, you could try i-cord ties or snaps.

    That is a totally adorable cardigan. I love it in the variegated yarn and can’t wait to see Z wearing it!
