April Finished Objects!

Hello there, thought I had better put my post up of some finished projects before life got ahead of me and I forgot.  The photos did not appear in the order that I selected them for some reason so I will just work with it.  First up is a baby slouchy hat for my nephew Atticus!  It is from the book King Cole Baby Book 5 which I ordered from Deramores.  I love Deramores, great prices, great service and it doesnt take too long to arrive here in Oz either which is great.  I used Sirdar Snuggly DK in the white and some leftover gray which I used for the vest below.

 Next up is a pattern from Sirdar knit in the fair isle colorway of Crofter Baby DK.  I loved how the stripes worked out although seaming him together was a bit of pain but I am happy now that he is done. I had to redo the legs so they werent facing outwards.  He is going to be a present for my cousin's first son who was born in January.  I do hope he will like it.
And finally a little vest from another Sirdar book.  I used Sirdar Snuggly DK in the gray colorway.  This is the 6 mth old size and it only used a ball and a bit so it is great.  It only took about 3 days all up and this will be to match with the hat for Atticus.  He is a very warm baby so he will be able to wear this in winter without overheating.  I think it turned out super cute.  Oh and thank you to everyone who left me a wonderful comment on the finished puppy - I really do appreciate comments on my work, it makes me smile!  Hope to catch up again soon.

What a beautiful set youve created for Atticus (I adore his name!).
Ive also made that vest so it's cheering to see someone knitting the same thing - often its a case of drooling over others' makes but never having the same patterns!

That toy is just so beautiful! I think it looks even better that it is in Crofter wool as it gives it some detail! Beautiful work!

Oooh, I love that cute little fair isle puppy! Unfortunately, blogger is being stingy with photos today and I can't see your first photo. Looks like you've been busy and creating beautiful knits!
