Sporty Car Coat




















I ventured into my local yarn store yesterday and found the new Sublime knitting books. I bought the baby one no. 606 and started on something for my next door neighbour's son who is turning 1 in October. This is the start of the Sporty Car Coat, knit in size 1 to 2 years, and he is a big baby so it should fit him in this size for quite a bit. I am using some leftover Cara Mia in the charcoal color which I had used for my sister's vest. It is so soft and squishy to knit with but shows up the stitches quite well. It has some really cute patterns in it too, and the colors of their yarns are just beautiful.
I also finished knitting a sock, but that will have to wait until Lachlan gets home so I can get him to take a decent photo of it. You just cannot model socks and take a picture as well so I will post it tomorrow for you all. Happy knitting!!
