I'm back on the feather-and-fan bandwagon. It's my favorite stitch pattern, hands down.
pattern: Lillie Baby Cardigan, by Laura Edwards
yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, cranberry, 1 skein (225 yds)
needles: Clover US 8 and 9 bamboo circs and DPNs
size: 0-3 months
Such a sweet little pattern! I used size 8 needles for the stockinette sections and size 9 for the feather-and-fan bits.
Since the finished projects on Ravelry all looked kind of long, I did 8 repeats of the feather-and-fan pattern on the body of the sweater. It might still be kind of long! We'll see how the length looks once it's worn by the intended recipient. : )

I'm really enjoying the blog Skinnytaste lately -- some great, easy recipes! A few of our favorites so far:
- avocado egg salad (I skipped the yogurt and used regular mayo, as the light stuff seems kind of creepy)
- crock pot buffalo chicken wraps (added extra Frank's Red Hot, served them on tortillas, and skipped the dressing, using crumbled blue cheese instead)
- crock pot Santa Fe Chicken (substituted fresh garlic and onions for the powdered versions)
