FO: Puerperium

Last night I finally sewed the buttons to the Puerperium Cardigan! These are the cutest little buttons I have ever seen :)  I bought them at Espace Tricot for those of you who live in the Montreal area.

This is a lovely pattern.  It is tiny and quick to knit, although it took me from August to January, I have for an excuse that I knitted the Pine Forest Baby Blanket at the same time!

It did not use much yarn either.  Not even half a skein of Millis by Julie Asselin. At first, I thought the color was really too bright but in the end, I really like how it turned out (the color below is not as accurate as above):

A lot of people knitted this pattern and I would definitely recommend it. 

I did not make any modifications.  See my project page on Ravelry.

Now, I'm knitting a little newborn hat and matching socks with leftover yarn.  The hat is already blocking and the second sock is on its way!

Then, I think I will start the Little Oak Cardigan with the Madelintosh Tosh Merino DK I had bought for a Wheat scarf but changed my mind... again!

I'm also thinking about what should be my challenge for the Ravellenics. I may knit a pair of socks again.  It is still a challenge for me to knit a pair of socks in two weeks and I find it actually satisfying to knit a pair of socks so quickly once every two year!  Will you knit something for the Ravellenics?

Happy New Year 2014 everyone!
