Knitting - A good start to the year

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

  1. Blue and brown is one of my favourite colour combinations! And the wee yellow sweater is so pretty. February is just around the corner. :-)
