Look at what arrived this morning at my house. Monkey and Kitty which I had ordered from Clair of Missy Muh. Arent they just adorable. I love their little faces and their little pot bellies too. Isabelle is already in love with the kitty and the monkey now has a permanent position next to the computer on my desk. I am sure tonight will be spent trying to think of a suitable name for each of them. Thank you Clair for making such cute animals! She is so talented and you must go take a peek at her blog if you havent already!
Oh and my third book arrived the next day that I was waiting on. I absolutely love all the cute and adorable patterns in this book by Lois Daykin. It is a must if you need to knit for little ones as a gift or if your lucky enough, your own baby. I love the teddy suit on the front cover, and there are lots of other wonderful knits too. I am going to try and knit up a hat from this book today, but more on that later.
I really love this little cardigan, and I wish it was big enough to knit for Isabelle. I am going to make it for my cousin's daughter, the one who was born about 2 months ago now. Shame on me for getting behind on knitting gifts. It seems just as I catch up someone else is having a baby. Must be the year for it I guess. I am sure that this little cardigan will be a delight to knit, and perhaps if I figure out the pattern I might be able to upsize it to fit my daughter too. I am still knitting away on the socks, and am on the gusset of the 2nd sock, so I am going to continue on that tonight and hopefully I will have a pair to photograph for you all soon. Happy knitting and have a wonderful wonderful day!
