Wearing her new cardigan at last

I said that I would post a pic of Elora in her new wrap cardigan. (Pattern from six and a half stitches.) So without further ado, here 'tis!

Ain't she cute? (She's scrunching up her face 'cause it was pretty windy outside today). I'm pretty happy with how it came out. My very first attempt at knitting a garment (scarves don't count as garments, do they?). I used cheap-ish wool cause I thought I'd stuff it up, but now that it's done I don't mind the look of it. Used Amy Butler Lotus fabric for the flap.

Also, check out her gorgeous socks that were a gift from some friends. So cute!

Do you know if this pattern works well with any yarn or just wool?

I'm not really sure about that! I always try to use wool (or alpaca - that's still technically wool, right?) but I can't imagine why it wouldn't work with other yarn. You'd be best contacting Alison at sixandahalfstitches as she is an incredible knitting expert (and wonderful crafter - might as well check out her entire blog while you're there!!).

Just a random passerby here, but can't resist saying she's a cute baby!
