Melissa, a regular reader of this little blog, has a question for fellow Fearless Knitters.
She’s just finished all the pieces for a blue cardigan sweater for her one-year old granddaughter. Because it’s the third sweater she’s knit for this precious human and because she’s an adventuresome knitter (among other qualities), she’d like to try something a bit different.
I’m thinking of lining the baby cardigan. Does anyone have advice on what the best fabric is to use — a lovely fun printed cotton or a very light flannel? I understand how to cut and assemble the inside garment, but I wonder what tricks or problems I should to watch out for – for best results. Thank you in advance.
Please leave any tips or recommendations in the comments.
In other baby knit news, the recently-completed log cabin blanket seems to fit in just fine. I resisted the urge to tell his mother that she’s got it inside out — she’s the nursing mother of a two-month old and has infinitely more important priorities than decorating.
I haven’t forgotten that I promised to tell you about the Strung Along Retreat. In a word, fabulous. More soon. Really.
