The yarn is from Östergötlands ullspinneri and dyed especially for the Dragon sweater by Ann at Anntorps Väv.
But this knitting was interrupted quite suddenly by a small surprise – only 50 centimeters and 3,3 kilos.
The small surprise – now named Siri – is the daughter of my friend Erika.
She arrived three weeks early so of course I was under the delusion that I had plenty of time to knit a little something.
When I got the news that it was a girl I hotfooted it over to my yarn stash and dug out some lovely apricot coloured wool and started knitting a little cardigan. I used an old pattern from the 1950´s – simple but pretty stylish. And a very quick knit – it took me under a week to finish.
You knit back and forth in garter stitch and when it´s done there is only one small hole under each sleeve that needs sewing together.
Brilliant – in my humble opinion.
I hope baby Siri will be happy with the cardigan.
