It’s Canada Day and FO Friday: Striped 5 hour baby cardigan

Today is Canada Day, and Canadians are out celebrating. The Prince and his new wife are in Ottawa (our capital) for the festivities. My family are doing a little gardening. Red Geraniums and white Lobelia, and Strawflowers. Later BBQ Pulled Pork for supper then over to my parents for the excellent view of public fireworks. I wish you all a lovely Canada Day!

Oh Canada!

Finished!  This Pattern is not really a 5 hour project but it was rather quick. I finished it and a friend came for a visit and this little sweater left with her. So it was gone in less than 5 hours! Oh well must knit another for the church Bazaar.


Needles: 5mm

Yarn: Kertzer Northern Worsted (about 1/2 Ball)

Notions: 4 buttons

Comment: Very good pattern for odds and ends of yarn. Hat pattern included. I recommend working the hat on 2 needles rather than in the round if stripes are desired. Will add this to my stable of Baby sweater patterns. For more FO Friday fun visit our friend Tami’s Blog!
