Ballet Wrap Cardigan


Blogging on a Sunday! Paul is working, Lachlan is at his grandparents and Isabelle is outside bouncing on the trampoline, so I thought I would post whilst I have a spare minute. I have been wrapping up Christmas presents all morning, so they are ready to put under the tree tonight once we have it set up and decorated. Isabelle is so excited, and she helped mum put hers up on Friday night, so its like a double celebration for her. So onto the knitting content, this is a little wrap cardigan that I am making for Bella. It is the Sweeten pattern from Rowan Babies, in the 2 to 3 years size, and is coming out very nicely. The colors seem to look washed out in the photo no matter what I tried, so please imagine them a nicer darker color than what is pictured. I do hope that Manda likes what I have done so far, as I started yesterday and just got past the armholes. I hope to finish the back today, fingers crossed. It is knitting up rather quickly so maybe I can post it off before Christmas time. I am using Zara merino which is so soft and I love this yarn because it keeps its shape and the colors are always really nice too. Oh by the way thank you for all the wonderful comments on the kid's knits that I completed. I assure you that they are greatly appreciated by me, and I love all of them, so thank you all very much. Must get back to the knitting now before Paul takes the tree out of the roof to be put up. Happy Knitting!
