FO: Baby ruched

Only it's not so ruched.
As mentioned before, I started with the Baby Ruched pattern, but mostly just used it for measurements and numbers. Details are on my rav page.
I did the 18 month size and it took about a week of not-so-steady knitting. And other than yarn turning my hands green (Sanguine Gryphon's Eidos*), it was an enjoyable knit. I found some cute little wooden buttons in the stash to finish it off
And once I get the majority of the cat hair off it, I'll get it packed up and sent off to California. Well in time for the little one's first birthday.

*I was worried I'd have to rinse the yarn forever to get it to stop bleeding, but thankfully, a short soak and started to rinse clear. No chance for a green baby!

Damn a green baby would be kind of awesome. Anyways I love this little cardi and it's a lucky recipient to get it. No disrespect to the original design, but I prefer it without the ruching bubbles. Wonderful job, but I'm throwing you some side eye with your not so consistent knitting and quick finish. You know you knit circles around the rest of us average slow joes ;)
