Knitting has become my thing to do at the moment; it's so portable and comforting.
A friend had a gorgeous baby girl at the end of March so I knitted the cardigan and hat for her. The cardy is a free pattern on ravelry called the Puerperium cardigan and I knitted it in Outlaw yarn, a NZ yarn made of 90% alpaca and 10% merino. It is so soft and smooth, perfect for a little baby. I had yarn left over so knitted a matching hat using the Baby Hat with Top Knot pattern which is also free on ravelry. I didn't have quite enough yarn so finished the top knot with cream angora. I waited until my friend's baby girl was born before choosing the pink gingham buttons and purchased the little pink toy to go with it.
The sock pattern is called Anemone socks by Wei S Leong.
The lavender knitting is the Lyttelton shrug, a pattern by Kate Davies. It is rather unseasonal knitting but it was on my list before the weather turned cold! I am quite close to finishing this one but unfortunately ran out of yarn so am waiting for another ball.
The last project is a cardigan called Mary Rebecca and I am hoping this will make the perfect winter cardy. I am using a Quince and Co yarn, 100% wool from America which is soft and squishy.
Thank you so much for stopping here, I am sorry I haven't visited your blogs recently. I am hoping to catch up with that this week. Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday, with much friendship, Wendy xx
