Baby Cardigan

I received a letter at Christmas from my friend Linda announcing that her daughter Kim is expecting a baby. Tish and I jumped up and down with excitement and she sat down and knitted some baby socks. It felt kind of momentous because Linda and I were pregnant together; I was expecting Tish and Jacob and was like a beached whale, she was a few weeks less pregnant with this neat little bump that hardly showed, and now she is an expectant grandma. We were good friends for some years when the children were little but had drifted out of touch.
It is nice to have an excuse to knit baby stuff again so I have made this cardigan, and am very pleased with it. It is a simple top down raglan knitted to this pattern, but it is quite plain so I added some simple snowflake designs to the front, back and sleeves. It is supposed to be newborn size but whatever, the baby can grow into it:-)
