A little bolero cardigan in a beautiful, warm, light merino that my darling girl has enjoyed wearing. Love how it turned out, but sewing the edging on was a pain in the behind. This was my first finished project after she was born! It took 4 months... There was very little knitting time to begin with. Thankfully that's changing.
Hands down, my favourite project. Last year when we went to visit our new niece in Feilding, we stopped at my favourite wool shop on the way and I picked up some more wool. I fell in love with this colourway (aptly named Watermelon) and had to have it. When I found out I was expecting, I was secretly hoping it was a girl so I could knit her something special with my beautiful wool. The pattern was actually quite easy and pleasant knitting. This one also took a month.
Smittens - a holiday garland... next time I knit a Christmas gift for a friend, I will start it earlier than mid-November - especially if it's a big project like this one. I'm thrilled with how it turned out though (and I think Bexki liked it!) Also, an Advent Calendar, given on Christmas Eve means that the recipient can open 24 little gifts the next day! I used scraps, leftovers and the wool I dyed with Kool-Aid (so those little mittens smelled delicious!) (This one should be first, but it keeps getting bumped down... I did this one while preggers and kept me busy while I was in and out of hospital in December. If it wasn't for those hospital visits, I doubt it would have gotten finished in time!)
I'm presently working on another wee vest for a friend's boy, finishing a sock and eyeing up hat patterns for a baby that is due in December (Just to clarify, not my baby due in December. A family member's bub.) I missed the soothing sounds of my clickety-clacking needles.
