Another FO, woohoo!!
Pattern: Ice Baby from Knit Today Issue 15
Yarn: Panda Magnum Soft, dark purple
and 1/4 ball of some boucle yarn
Started: 2009 - cant remember which month
Finished: July 2009
I pulled it out from the UFO basket to finish it off for my god-daughter. It will be her xmas present this year so it is extra big. She grows like a weed that girl I tell you, but she is extra cute!
This FO is not by me, but my mum. She wanted to knit Isabelle a poncho since the cabled one she knit a long time ago now no longer fits. This one was knit from my stash yarn of 8 ply spotlight yarn. There are 2 different pinks and 2 different purples in that stripey sequence and it is all MOSS stitch (or as some people call it seed stitch). i love how it turned out but I need to buy Isabelle a skivvy for the neck part so it doesnt irritate her skin. I seem to have the same problem with wool too. The pattern is from Shepherd Moda Issue 6 Book. It has a few other nice patterns in that book too. It only took her 2 weeks to knit it up and add the fringe. Now I am off to do some more knitting. I have finished 2 sets of the dolls clothes and my mum knit 2 others, and now is on the 3rd one as the one she had the pattern didnt make sense. We will see how we go after the weekend with knitting some more. I again have bronchitis and have been told it is from being out in the cold weather. I did attend my sister's quilt in group on Saturday but ended up leaving after lunch (yes the sickies) and went to the doctors. I guess I need to keep out of the cold weather but it is a bit hard when you have newspaper deliveries to do in the rain and the cold. Maybe I need to wear a balaclava instead of a scarf and hat.
Oh and I joined a washcloth swap which is being run by Jodie. I have already knit one up but I dont think the pattern pops enough in the cotton I used so I will find another pattern to knit up. It should be a lot of fun, I love doing those things. Okay that is it until I feel better or have another FO for you all.
