By the time I learned to knit — 6 years ago — most of my friends were done having babies.  But I do have one friend who is taking the plunge — by sperm donor, as a single mom, no less.  Like most knitters, I am thrilled to have a baby to knit for.  My friend is having a girl so I decided to make her a Playful Stripes Cardigan, one of the patterns I bought at Stitches.

Yup, I’m on a Never Not Knitting pattern streak — this is my third in a row that I’ve made.  But her patterns are well-written and super cute.  I can’t resist.
