Take me home tonight

I cast on for the Puerperium Cardigan (a free pattern by Kelly Brooker) right before the guys got here for movie night, then knit throughout Rat Race.  It calls for one skein of madelinetosh tosh dk, which I happened to have in a gorgeous shade called bloomsbury.  Depending on the buttons I find, it would work beautifully for a boy or a girl.
The thought of bringing my baby home in this sweater made me instantly start belting out "Take Me Home Tonight," by Eddie Money.  I just ignore the intended meaning of the song and imagine it's about Stormy:

Take me home tonight
I don't want to let you go til you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang:
Be my little baby

PS I strongly urge you to watch this video, keeping a sharp eye out for when he uses a saxophone as an air guitar, then rips off his shirt and...well, you'll have to see it to believe.  It's so worth it.
