The pattern calls for icord ties but it just didn't seem like a sweater that could use those. I found these little heart buttons and decided to stick them on (2 of my increases ended up working perfectly for button holes!).
It was a super quick knit (yes my pictures suck but guess what!? My camera is back in action so no more craptastic pics :) ).
Pattern: Apple Blossom Cardigan
Needles: 8's (this is a mod)
Yarn: Random acrylic
Mods: Only 4 repeats of the lace pattern (pattern calls for 6 which would be huge on a newborn), size 8 needles (I think the pattern uses 10's), buttons instead of icord ties.
No pictures of it yet on the baby..every time she has worn it (a couple from the sounds of it) I haven't been around them that day. :)
