Flying off the needles

My sister is expecting her second child in just over a week, so I've been knitting frantically to get a few bits finished for her.

I made this little coffee bean cardigan in Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran, which is so soft and just right for a little baby.
This apple blossom cardigan was another free pattern (as was the one above) and I though yellow would be just right for the spring. It was supposed to be in worsted weight yarn, but I used DK which actually gave a better size, more like a real newborn size.

Finally for her I made this little cardigan, which I have made before for Evie and Leah, and I chose to use something other than pink. I think she likes it!
I also made something for leah that she actually doesn't mind wearing. The yarn is the yarn that I got from sirdar as a replacement, so the only cost to me was the pattern.

I think it turned out rather well.

Blimey! How busy have you been?? This would be my gallery of knits for the entire year! :D They are lovely. I especially like the dear little yellow summery number - very cute! :)
