The first project for Kate to use up all that extra Lorna’s Laces was not a total success.

It’s the Manda Ruth cardigan and though cute the sizing is all off.  I chose the six month size and added a bunch of length to the arms and body but didn’t worry too much about the width since Kate is so tiny  but it just fits her barely five month old body.  The hood is also so shallow it is non-functional, except for serving to pull the whole body back. I even tried to widen it by making it flush with the button bands but it didn’t help.

The cuteness definitely counts for something, though, does it not?

P.S. – I can’t wait for Kate to be able to sit up on her own so that her sweaters aren’t covered by man hands.
