As promised, here are some photos of my finished Trellis baby cardigan:
Sorry about the mediocre pictures. My camera decided to go on the fritz this week (mind you, I've only had it for a little over 6 months) and had to be sent back for service. Under warranty, thank goodness. As a result I'm trying to use my crummy work camera, which isn't nearly as nice. Though at least it doesn't break for no good reason!

Here is the back view:
And a close up of the cable pattern:
Pattern notes:
Trellis published by Knitty
Yarn: Rowan All-Seasons Cotton in Color #191, knit on US size 5 needles (I think)

I'm very happy with how this cardigan turned out. I think it's adorable, hopefully the recipients will think so too! The pattern was perfect, very easy to follow with no errors that I saw. The only thing I might change would be to use a more bright, fun color (since it's for a baby), but at least this will go with lots of different outfits. Plus it used up some stash yarn which is always a good thing!

Oh wow! Lobstah, it looks gorgeous. Very neat cables and I like the collar too. It looks so neat and tidy, almost. I'm sure the lucky recipient (or its mum) will be very grateful.

Great job! Some little kid is going to be warm this winter! What perfect timing to finish this for the cooler weather, too. did you use the yarn planned for Toledo?

The cardi is beautiful! I would only change one thing - the colour... (you even mentioned it yourself ^^). I just can't stand grey...

All the kid needs now is a slicker and a lobster trap. Gorton's jingle going through my head. Beautiful piece and the hiking pics look well worth it.

Looks great!! Marius and I were admiring it this weekend.

I miss the New England fall.. we seem to be in a warm spell - after a freezing cold August. So strange here this weather.
