Little Daisy Cardigan for a Little Angel

I am making Zoe Mellor's Hearts and Stars Blanket for Quill, but it is taking SOOOOOOO LONG that I had to satisfy immediate knitting cravings.

So I discovered the Little Daisy Cardigan by Sublime Yarns. How perfect for the Australian spring weather too, open at the front and short sleeves. I made mine in colour Gooseberry 004 a pretty green colour, and I used the suggested Baby Cashmere Merino Silk dk. Very yummy yarn, nice and soft and perfect for next to baby's skin. Also found a button in my very old button box that matched perfectly.
Any complaints: well it came out a little on the small side. I made the smallest size, which is for a 0-6 month old, and it Just fits DD2 now. She is 5 weeks old, so unfortunately she won't get much wear out of it. It also could do with being 3 cm longer.

Here's my girl wearing it, although she's none too pleased about having her photo taken. xxxxxxx

Thanks Moggle, the yarn is fantastic and it is such a sweet colour. Although I've just realised in the pictures I posted the yarn looks a different colour in each one!!! :)

That is SO cute... Sadly I have not found that pattern from here (Finland). It would look really great on my babygirl!
