2009 - FO No. 12

Another FO, this time for a baby boy who weighed 11 pounds! This is the size 6 months so I hope he isnt too big for it.
Pattern: Textured Hoodie from Baby Bamboo Too, Sirdar Book 346
Yarn: Cleckheaton Country 8 ply, silver blue with flecks, about 5 balls
Started: 3rd April Finished: 13th April
Buttons: Whales (from stash) navy colo
I love a lot of patterns from this book, and you dont have to use bamboo yarn either, you can use any other DK yarns that knit to gauge. I am hoping to finish Isabelle's cable and bobble jacket which is knitting up really nicely. I only have one sleeve left to finish and the right front and collar, so hopefully it will be finished soon.

Love the jacket ~ it's a basketweave stitch, I think, and I am partial to that stitch pattern!

11 lbs. My word. I think that deserves a box of lovely chocolates and flowers - LOL
