Some finished knitting

It has been a busy couple of weeks here, what with the Easter holidays and Evie beeing poorly. I haven't had much time for blogging, but have managed to finish some baby knits.

This was a spur of the moment knit and I'm still not sure who it's for. I wanted to use up some yarn and found a sport weight sock yarn just perfect for it. I edged it with some kashmir dk which gives it a lovely soft feel. The pattern is available for free here, you just have to be a member of ravelry to get it.

This little cardi is for Amelia, as long as it fits! I loved knitting the pattern and will definitely be knitting it again. If it doesn't fit her, Lily can have it. I'm sure Anna won't mind too much.

I made this cardigan for Leah and although I wasn't impressed with the yarn, the over all cardigan isn't too bad. At least she wears it, which is always a bonus. I used James C Brett marble and I wouldn't really want to use it again. That doesn't really happen to me all that often!

Finally I made another cardigan for Evie. I wanted to try and stay away from too much pink, so I decided on cream and navy. I think it turned out rather nice and she looks so cute in it. I do love Sirdar patterns, and they always come out so nice.

They all are beautiful but I absolutely adore the first cardigan. The colours are very pretty and the cardi looks just perfect!

Happy knitting,
