FO No. 29


Pattern: Textured Jacket from Baby Knits by Lois Daykin
Size: 6-9 months
Yarn: Harvest yarn from Spotlight, nearly 4 balls. This yarn has a crepe look to it, but knits
up beautifully.
Started: October, finished today
I had bought some other buttons, but forgot where I had put them, so instead went through my button stash and found some to replace the ones I had misplaced. I really like the pattern in this little jacket and it was quite quick to knit up too. Lovely for a present, or even if you have your own baby it will be a great addition to their wardrobe. Now I can cast on for some other projects now that I have finished up 2 today. Happy knitting!!

That is lovely and I really like the colour. I like Spotlight wools - have you seen their new bamboo yarn??

You should consider on-line shop with hand knitted baby items! Really!

I know I always seem to say this, but my goodness, you are so productive. This is simply gorgeous, such a lovely colour and looks so warm and comforting.

Thanks for your comment on my finished scarf and yes, I think you are right, I may very well be in love with Habu, can this be healthy I ask myself?

This is a lovely pattern Sue. I think this book must've got past me. I've so many on the shelf and there are so many fab web patterns now, we're all spoilt for choice! Super colour too. Do you know how this yarn washes and wears?
