FO: Hat and Bootie Combo

Here’s a hat and bootie combo that I finished last year around October/November time, hang on, make that two years ago. It was for a journalist that I spoke to regularly about one of my clients in my day job (that’s PR, just in case I’ve never mentioned what I do). She was expecting a baby in or around December/January.

I decided to go with a very neutral brown as I didn’t know whether she was having a boy or girl, as a matter of fact, I still don’t know. I used some left over Drops Fabel that I had used for a jumper for Luke and it came out beautifully.

I think it’s rather a nice combo.

WIP Wednesday

I’ve been busy knitting away at a cardigan for a friends daughter, and she actually ‘ordered’ it from me at the Christmas market, where we shared the stall. It’s a cardigan that I knitted before, in fact I knitted the exact same purple and pink colour combination. This was when we thought we were having a girl, so Luke hasn’t worn it yet, but I think he might one day. Purple is not that bad on a boy, right?

It’s actually a really easy knit as it’s all knitted in garter stitch. It takes a while to knit the sleeves, once they’re cast on, as therer are 226 stitches. But I do manage to knit it while Luke is playing or napping, so that’s pretty good.

FO: Cable Vest (with my Gorgeous Boy)

Here’s the cable vest that I was knitting back in November, and blogged about here and here. I took pictures of it back in early December, when we got back from Australia and Luke has been wearing it loads.

The pattern was great, and yes, it was another one from the guys over at Garnstudio. I should be getting some sort of commission from Garnstudio, I’m always going around mentioning their patterns, and that’s because they’re fantastic. It was such a nice, easy pattern to knit up, especially as it was the first time I was knitting cables.

I did change it up a little bit and didn’t finish it like they suggested, instead I just knitted it in one go.

I love how the cables worked out…this last picture doesn’t really give the colour of the vest justice, it’s actually a nicer blue. But why don’t you judge for yourself in the next two pictures? It’s my gorgeous boy Luke wearing the vest.
