Tulle and Pearls Cardigan

 

Isn't my new niece going to be sweet snuggled up in this?! I can't wait! She should be here in a couple of months!


I made a few modifications to this pattern, but they were VERY easy to execute. You can see my notes HERE. I'm still a beginner so I can't venture too far from a pattern just yet. :) These few easy modifications made this a completely different cardigan! It was a fast knit, I could have finished in one day pretty easily.

I made this sweet little fabric and tulle flower to finish it off. I really, really, REALLY wanted to make a dress to go under this, but my body said NO! If I'm going to make it to 37 weeks with this babe I've just got to listen, even when it keeps me from doing the things I love. I have had a couple of tricky days so I'm just going to sit and see if it passes. Maybe it will and I will still get a chance to sew! xo, Sam

Yes! I'm glued to my chair, I've made a little nest around me, full of yarn and notions! :) I'm going to do my nails tonight, that should be fun! Tomorrow I get to leave the house for a bit to see the doctor and check on this babe. I'm thinking I may get to eat lunch out too! I'm also working on a little surprise for the blog while I sit too! Thanks for the prayers ladies!

xo,
Sam

The cardigan is gorgeous, lovely colour and the little fabric brooch really sets it off. Take it easy, feet up and enjoy being waited on :)
