This is a little cardigan that had been hanging around for weeks waiting for me to knit the button bands and then sew together - the most hateful job. Its for a baby due in 3 weeks so really needed to be finished, Its a sweet pattern and I like it very much,
A simple guernsey jumper for my little grandson - nice and loose fitting, perfect for layering. He will look adorable in it.
A headband for my daughter, I didn't think she would wear one but when asked said yes, so out came the needles. Very quick and simple knit. Here it is being modelled!
Then - helping my daughter finish a blanket destined for her future ma-in-law! Poor girl has been working so hard in the lead up to Christmas that she just couldn't find the time so I gave her a hand.
I love the idea of small squares outside a large one, and have mentally filed this away as a future project to think about.
And last but certainly not least... a fabulous Christmas present from my daughter. A gorgeous doorstop, handmade for me, in the image of an allotment shed (but much nicer than my actual allotment shed!).
LOOK at those beautiful embroidered hollyhocks
Sweet peas scrambling over a wigwam
Lavender and a pair of green wellies
and a door. Isn't it truly gorgeous, the girl who made it for my daughter is young and sews beautifully. I love it.
