There’s been a veritable baby-boom around here lately. My sister gave birth to my beautiful nephew Elijah in January, my friend Lizzie is having a baby girl any day now, another friend is due to give birth to twins in a few months, and my dear friend and college roommate Deborah is having her first daughter in late summer. It’s been a factory of tiny knitted things around here lately. These are for Lizzie’s Alice, who I hope to get to see before too long.

Pattern: Louise Cardigan, from Vintage Baby Knits
Yarn: North Loop Yarn Silky Merino Sock, in Princess
Needles: Size 4
