Some time ago, I wrote that tiny knitted cardigans were one of the things that made me want to have a daughter.
The things that bring on the girl-sickness in me are little vintage dresses with knitted cardigans over the top. I start imagining all the different patterns and colors I could knit those cardigans in, and―before I know it―I'm wildly pinning dreams I didn't even know I had onto my secret “Baby Girl” Pinterest board.
But, as I was flipping through Little Miss's closet a few weeks ago, I realized she didn't have a single knitted-by-mom cardi. It's not like she doesn't have any knitted goods, mind you, but--still--I was feeling the lack.
What could I do? I ordered some yarn and cast one on.
Lovely little pattern--it's called "Granny's Favorite"--although I almost thought it was too detailed and I ended up with a lot of yarn leftover. I'm not sad to have to make something else in that gorgeous color, though, so there's that.
And, in any event, my cardigan problem is solved; I can now continue to live out my mom-of-a-little-girl daydreams.
