Grey Baby Garter Ridge Cardigan

This morning, I'm driving to Vernon an hour and a half away and spending the day with a friend. Along with our usual conversations about sewing and art, we're going shopping, out for lunch, and to an exhibit at the gallery. I'm looking forward to the day.

In January, my friend "had" a new grandson and I keep saying I am knitting a sweater for him... and I am... sort of... only it's a complicated sweater and my brain just wasn't getting to doing the math of the buttonhole band so yesterday, I started a new one using a grey, classic wool that is gorgeous to knit with.

It's the Garter Ridge Baby Cardigan - a free pattern from Lion Brand yarns. This pattern is almost as good for mindless knitting as a scarf. It's knit from the bottom up adding the buttonholes as you go and separating for the armholes with the sleeves sewn in. It's simple and there's very little finishing.

Grateful - a day away


  1. All my knitting and lots of my sewing lately has had to be mindless! Enjoy your day!

  2. Hooray for a day out and some quiet contemplation. More hugs.

  3. A peaceful day with a friend can be priceless....

  4. Oh, I so much like grey and navy blue on babies! Glad you had some quiet time, and some friend time, and got to think about sweet little babies while you knitted.


Thanks for commenting. I appreciate the feedback and the creative conversation.
