I am now on a mission to see how many newborn baby cardigans I can make before sunday. As mentioned in yesterdays post my little nephew came into the world a little small, he wasn’t premature just ickle. Myself and my mum are now busy knitting away so little Harvey has some small clothes to wear. I’ve found a couple of basic patterns on-line and did about 1/3rd of one last night. I’m hoping to complete two my sunday. If anyone knows of any nice, free baby patterns for cardigans and jumpers could you leave a comment with a link. I have an abundance of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino so he’s going to be a lucky boy with very squishy clothes.
I ordered my first issue of IK a while ago (fall 06) and it arrived today. I had never seen a copy before and really wanted to make the swallowtail shawl so thought that was a good issue to get – I can now see why so many people rave about it. It is fantastic, so many great patterns – i had been trying to find a nice masculine sock pattern for a while and the Father & Son socks are just perfect.
For all you swap addicts out there, there is a new one open for sign-ups, themed around winter, Winter Wonderland Swap and dishcloths. It seems like fun to me.
Hopefully my camara will be back with me on monday so you can all laugh at our halloween/birthday antics. I really must go as I can hear the Eastenders theme music starting…
