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.
