As most of you know I LOVE to knit, other than the blood droplets, I have knitted these so far this year. I am trying to be good about documenting patterns and yarns, thus enabling readers to find the information quickly should they like a yarn or pattern.
Pattern : simple hat, not based on any particular pattern - I knitted a flower to be added incase the baby should be a girl. I have no problem with blue on girls, but at least people won't have to ask what gender. The mitts pattern was slightly adapted from a pattern I found on the net but can't remember where
Yarn: Red Heart Fina DK - 100% wool - this is a very fine DK more of a sport weight, nice and soft though
Pattern: Design E from the Sirdar Early Arrivals #2 book
Yarn: Sublime baby cotton kapok DK - colourway milkshake
Both of these projects are for our new grandchild due in February, excitement is mounting, but still a way off yet.
Whilst on the subject of new babies, huge congratulations to Alex & Cat on the birth of their new daughter Lily, sister for Charlie. Well done to you all, and at least Cat will be feeling human again after 9 months of being sick!
Do you have plans for the weekend? The sun is out here in Cambridgeshire, cold, but I am hoping that the garden will dry up a bit so we can get out for some tidying. The bulbs are poking through with the promise of spring on the horizon. Anyway have a great weekend, I'll be sure to document ours, so pop back again.
Thanks for visiting
