Dylan's cable sweater

Pattern Kai Cable Sweater by Louisa Harding
Size 18 months

Needle US 7 / 4.5 mm/US 8 / 5.0 mm
Yarn -2 skeins Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Solid( I had 9 yards left from the 2nd skein) so no waste at all.
Started October 17 2009
Completed- October 21 2009 (just in time to give it to him for his half birthday) yes,our little Dylan is 6 months old today!

Here in Canada, a parent can take off as much as a year paid maternity,Cari took 6 months. and she goes back to work today! I'm going to be caring for Dylan full time. I know it will be hard on her, especially at his age, when he'll start to do all his firsts... the first word, the first steps, the first time he tries foods. But we hope he does all that on the weekends, I will have to reserve the weekends for knitting as well. This should be a lot of fun...we hope!

Wow what a cute little boy you get ot knit for. I love that cable sweater and the yarn color suits him so well. Let's hope he does save some of his firsts for his mum so she doesnt miss out on any of them.
