A little help from Linnea

I finished the baby cardigan but I'm a little concerned that's it's a bit small. I opted to make the 0-3 month size instead of the usual 6 month size I generally give as gift.

At knitting the other night, we had a special guest who offered to try on the sweater for me.
Linnea is 2 months old and the sweater was a little small on her. Her mother assures me that Linnea is big for her age and that yes, babies are that small. I'm thinking of skipping the buttons and opting instead for a pretty purple ribbon to tie it off.

I'll have a different picture of the sweater once it's blocked and finished with the tie.

She's a cute little bug - just look at those cheeks! And I bet her rubber bands on her wrists are FAB!!! -S

The sweater looks great, Meg -- I'm looking forward to seeing the FO. A purple ribbon would look dashing.

I hope this doesn't sound weird, but I would agree with Linnea's mom -- she does look big for 2 months. And I would vote for the ribbon! I think that would look very fancy. ;-)

Gah. That last post was me. In case you're wondering who "Anchor" is.
