FO No 20

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!

LOVE the jacket! So sophisticated, I thought it was grown-up size until you mentioned baby sizes. I'd like one in my own size, please!

The little hoodie jacket is adorable! The cables really complete it.

Have fun with that gorgeous yarn...what amazing colours!

Sandra said...

I love the chocolate colour and the cables. My little one looks great in browns too. I have some nice chocolate 12 ply to knit for him but if I don't get a wiggle on it'll be summer!

That's a very sophisticated color for a little one, and the hood looks nice and cosy too.

Oooh, all that lovely sock yarn, mmmmm.

The cabled jacket is gorgeous, lucky boy.

Thank you for your sock book recommendations, I don't think I will be limiting myself to just one!

Such a sophisticated little cardigan. I don't believe I have seen this colour of sirdar snuggly at my lys before. They have so many colours and they're so tempting and soft.
