Tulip...almost PeaPod

Oh, my goodness...I've had the yarn for the Pea Pod for months now and keep having the urge to knit some other baby thing first, don't know why. A couple months ago, I knit this for a baby girl of a friend of my sister's.

The wonderful Tulip Cardigan from Dream in Color. I used Knit Picks yarn and needles for all-thinking that although the Dream in Color yarns are luscious and beautiful, I liked the larger variety of color from Knit Picks, whose Swish Superwash is also incredibly soft and superwash merino.

Anyway, I didn't follow the colorways described on the pattern but used my own. I liked the ones I picked and I thought the black really offset the softer colors-having a very slight "stained glass" effect...maybe. What do you think?

Now, although I have millions of projcts I'm currently working on, I think it's about time I started (and finished) my PeaPod set. Don't you think? LOL!

P.S. You can check out some of my other projects and patterns on my blog here: Sleepy Eyes Knitting.
