Car Knitting -- Baby Cardigans

Greetings, yarn people!

I just got back from a road trip to Wisconsin last night. My sweet husband did all of the driving so I got to knit! I took along the yarn, needles, and patterns for two baby cardigans. Of course, I had to set the first one aside because I forgot to include the right needle.

I did make tracks on this little Fuss Free Baby Cardigan knit with HiKoo Sueno in Color 1110 Gray. It's an easy top down design that's knit on a US #6 (4.0 mm) needle so it goes fairly fast.

I used a 24" Addi Rocket Squared circular needle, my new favorite knitting needle. See the link below.

In the top photo you can see my ScoJo 2.5 magnification gel reading glasses and the trusty 02 micron pen. I like the 2.5 glasses for knitting and I reach for micron pens when I'm doing a journal or a diary.

The Sueno comes in 100 gram skeins that are 255 yards long. I already knit this little cardigan in the 6 months size, but wanted to try it again in the 0-3 months size. You could use HiKoo Simplicity for this cardi (link below) but because it comes in 50 gram skeins, you'd need two skeins.

Here's what the cardi looks like knit in another neutral, color 1102, Caramel. This cardi is accompanied by a Bearly Bonnet (another free download on Ravelry) and ribbed socks. The trio make a nice little set for a newborn!

PS Many of you know that I'm an artist and bird watcher, too. We spent half a day at Seney National Wildlife Refuge in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and got to photograph trumpeter swans, loons, and a new bird for me, a spruce grouse. I use the photos as reference in my art work.

The UP is up north for us Michigan folks. It's wilderness and fudge shops and smoked fish and ferries and our Big Mac Bridge. Such a special part of the world.

Here's our Car Trail Mix. It's five kinds of snacks, mixed together in a plastic sack. This was peanut M&Ms, plain M&Ms, Cheez-Its (my weakness), little pretzels, and honey roasted peanuts. We can get a lot of miles down the road when we fuel up on Car Trail Mix! And, for fun, read about how Cheez-Its got their name!
