Sweater for Baby Boy

I’m knitting a sweater for my little baby boy.  It’s called the Puerperium Cardigan and is designed to fit baby for the first 6 weeks of his life.  This is a good thing because if baby is born anywhere near his due date, I don’t think he is going to need too many sweaters after 6 weeks old.  I remember it warming up pretty quickly in March this year and wouldn’t be surprised if next year is the same way.

It’s about a third of the way finished, and after this I think I may swear off knitted baby clothes forever.  Much like my Baby Hat (which is twice as long as it was before, but still not done) it looks so tiny until I really start thinking about it, and then it just looks enormous.  Is this really going to fit a tiny human that is supposed to come out of me?  I’m not sure I’m entirely comfortable with that.

I think from now on I’ll be sticking with knitted blankets, starting with this one – the Lullaby Blanket.  Here’s a picture if you can’t open the link.  I can wrap baby up in them to keep him warm, and can unwrap him a bit if he gets too hot.  Blankets are the way to go in my opinion.  They look big, and they’re supposed to be.  And I don’t in any way have to think about how big the baby is that’s going to fit in it.  The beauty of a blanket is that it can fold into dozens of different sizes.

I’m feeling pretty good about my blanket plan.

    That is such a sweet little baby sweater! And what little baby wouldn’t feel the love with that blanket!

      Thanks Cheryl! I do think this sweater is going to be absolutely adorable. I’m going to have to go button hunting sometime soon. I never make things with buttons and thus don’t keep any in the house.

    Well, if you take that tiny sweater with you for the button shopping, I’m sure there will be lots of oohs and ahhs. I’m really excited for you.
