FO No. 18


Pattern: Sirdar Baby Knits book 316 - Design K Textured Jacket
Size: 6 - 12 months
Yarn: 8 ply wool, about 4 or 5 balls
Started: 5th June and finished 8th June 2007
I loved knitting this little jacket, so easy to remember the simple pattern, and it does go by quickly. I probably could have knit this easily in 3 days, if I hadnt been naughty and knit other things too. I already had the yarn and buttons in my stash, so it is slowly reducing bit by bit. I need to stock up on the buttons again though, as I am starting to run out of ones that match my knits. Speaking of knitting, have you seen the new Knitty patterns, I like so many of them. Laura has designed a cute girl's top too, and I couldnt help myself but to print it out straight away. I am sure this will be a good top for summer, and it will be perfect for Isabelle to wear. Isabelle loved the chevron patterned skirt too, so that was also printed out. There are quite a few sock patterns too, which reminds me I need to start another pair. Tomorrow shall be the start of the WIP's pile, so one a day for the rest of the week should get me through them. Happy knitting and have a wonderful day!

Hi Sue
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love the baby jacket - one of my favourite colours. I've just cast on a vest for myself in a similar colour. My youngest Flea lives at Gisborne - she and her partner have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 guinea pig and 2 giant axolotls and 2 children who go to Mowbray. It's a small world in cyberland.
Cheers

That is so cute! I love the colour too! beautiful and bright.

You are churning through your stash very well arent you? I am getting through mine slowly (though I went out and bought wool for my next two projects...bad me should have used stash).
