FO Friday - Ode to Doris

I am currently knitting for a new baby girl due in September, a friends 3rd granddaughter.  Knitting for girls is a treat, so much choice.  I am also in love with the patterns from Pekapeka, and am working my way through the free patterns until I get to need the next size up.

Ode to Doris - I have used King Cole Big Value DK for this one.

As I finished this last night I immediately cast on - Composite.  For this one I am using some of the yarn I won recently from Stylecraft - Lullaby, a very soft squishy DK

There is a good chance I will cast on Emma Asked as well.  I need to sort through my stash for 4ply, I know I have lots of cream, but I may have enough of something more colourful.  Kelly has just released this one - Taraxacum which is very sweet too and in DK. I also like this one, Hundreds, also DK and will use up those oddments of stash.

I have just treated myself to some of Kelly's pattern books for larger sizes, so expect to see some more knits for Miss J coming soon.


  1. I have never seen those patterns, I will be having a closer look. Love the little cardigan, I have a baby boy to knit for and am using the Stylecraft yarn it is really soft.

  2. I knit two rows of Tucker's sweater this week and felt I had accomplished something. Sigh.
    I must learn to knit at Sue speed!

  3. You most definitely are a speedy knitter!
