Pattern: Jacket from Sirdar Baby Knits Book 316
Size: 6-12 months
Yarn: Snuggly DK, 3 balls
I finally finished knitting the jacket that I started months ago. I put it aside to knit on other things as I normally do (must stop doing that), and then during the week thought that I would finish knitting it. I had already completed the back, so the rest was finished during the week. The Snuggly DK is so soft and I think it shows the pattern up well. It is actually a chocolate brown color and I think it will be so nice for a little boy. Speaking of little boys, we have another little boy named Sam who decided to arrive last night, so congratulations to Paul's cousin. He was a big baby, 9' 11 and was about 2 weeks late. He must have been scared to come out into the cold weather we have been having and decided it was much nicer where he was.
Also my yarn arrived this morning from Katt, who just makes the most beautiful colored yarn. From left to right we have Patter, Pansy and Boyson. I absolutely adore all of these colors Katt, and will be knitting a new knit today with the green ones, although I dont think the other 2 colors will be sitting there for long either. I will have to make some nice socks out of those! I must look through the Interweave Favourite Socks book I think for some inspiration. Well that is it for now as the kids will be on school holidays as of 2:30 this afternoon, so a few chores need doing beforehand. I also will still be delivering catalogues although in a new area further from home on a permanent basis, and on a larger scale too, so blogging may be a bit quiet for the next 2 weeks. Happy holidays!
