FO No. 27

Pattern: Ribbon Edged Cardigan from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss
Size: 6 - 9 months
Yarn: Cotone cotton from Spotlight, dark pink, 4 balls
Started: Last week
Finished: Today
I loved knitting this pattern since this is about the 4th time I have made it. I decided not to add the ribbon, but added this embroidered ribbon instead around the neckline and the cuffs of the sleeves. This will be a present for my friend whose baby girl is due in February 2008. It always knits up so quickly too, and this is the first time I have knit it in cotton too.

This is darling, and I LOVE your Ribby Cardi! I made a Sitcom Chic in Cotton Ease three years ago or so and I still love it. I've got to get a Ribby Cardi going!

I am envious of all of your FO's! I really need to start keeping track of mine! Or maybe I should actually finish them first! I have way too many sitting on needles, scarted around the house!

By the way, the cardigan looks great!
