Finished Object Friday

Last Friday of the year.  Hard to believe.  Here is the second baby sweater for baby Olivia who will be making her debut in March.  The wrap cardigan is a lovely shade of lavender (to my eyes), some people say it is periwinkle but it isn't.  And this picture isn't doing it justice - it is lavender not blue.  It is a bamboo blend yarn and once I changed to bamboo needles it was much easier to work with.
Pattern is here, though I changed the lace to something that made more sense to me, did the trim differently and skipped the embroidery.  Olivia's middle name will be Lily, so I am considering embroidering a lily on it.  We'll see if I get inspired.

For all the other great year end objects, head over to Tami's.  Have a safe and happy New Year's.

  1. So pretty, I really love the look of the trim! And I think I like your lace better than the pattern, yours has more character somehow. :) What a nice "welcome to the world" gift this will be.
