I really loved this pattern which I had printed off last year sometime. I thought it might be perfect for a 2 year old who will be turning 3 on Valentine's Day. Felicity is the sister of one of Lachlan's very good mates and she is very petite with very blonde hair and big blue eyes so this should be perfect for her. The yarn seemed to go a long way and there was just enough pattern in the bottom of the skirt to keep me interested. I think I am getting used to knitting from the top down now and knitting on circulars too.
I decided before Christmas to invest in some more circulars in sock needle sizes so I can finally start knitting socks that way instead of dpns. We will see how I go with that as I dont mind knitting on dpns but am always worried that I will come back to them and the stitches will be off the needles.
I also started a scarf last night for my sister who turns 36 on Friday. The pattern is from Anne Hanson of Knitspot who is a wonderful designer of gorgeous shawls, hats and I think socks too. If you havent visited her before you really should. She is knitspot on ravelry. The scarf is looking lovely in the green that Isabelle chose. I am using the Purla yarn which is so soft and hopefully warm enough for the upcoming winter. I think that is about it for now so I will see you soon as I get back to enjoying my knitting and late nights too!
