I cast on for this little jumper the night before my planned C-section for Baby B. Since I was scheduled last on the list, I figured I'd have lots of knitting time while waiting my turn and potentially being bumped for emergencies. I needed something to distract me from my rumbling hungry tummy!
Anyway, I did get lots of knitting done before and after the birth, because Baby was an easy and sleepy little mite on the postnatal ward.
The yarn is WI branded (for what that's worth) and is a acrylic 4 ply and wonderfully soft. There aren't too many acrylics I'm prepared to knit with and this is one of them. I suspect it's a cousin of Patons Smoothie?
The pattern is "Beyond Puerperium" and my notes are here. It ended up as a baby gift for my little niece. Hope she likes it!
