Even though I spend a substantial amount of my free time working with thread, I do try to find time to switch back to yarn and create something else. My go-to weight when not using thread is often fingering. This weight yarn can be difficult, or rather tedious, to work with if you attempt to use it on a pattern that would not normally require it. It's thin enough to make your efforts take much longer than you planned.
Lately, my non-doily projects have been baby cardigans. I found this lovely Loops & Threads yarn at Michaels the other day called Woolike, and I knew I had to get some. I snagged three skeins in different colors. It is 85% acrylic and 15% nylon. It is so unbelievably soft.
This pattern that I've been using, I modified heavily. The pattern Spring Cardi by KT & the Squid is actually designed for adult sizes, but I changed all the stitch counts so I could make it fit an infant. It only took one attempt before I had my counts right. This one that I finished, my seventh one, is sized for 12-months. If you would like to use my stitch counts, you can find them on my project page.
