FO: Cable Cardigan for a Darling Girl

I knitted a few things for a good friends little girl. She was born a little early in December and I was able to finish a cardigan, bonnet and a couple of booties.

It’s this fantastic DROPS cable coat that I’ve knitted a few times before.

I love this pattern, I love how easy it is to knit and that despite quite long (it’s basically a coat) it knits up really quickly. This might be due to the size of the DROPS Merino Extra Fine yarn that it calls for.

My friend picked the colour and I absolutely love it for a girl, it’s so unusual it makes it extra special. Here are a couple of detailed shots for you to enjoy.

What do you think of my label? I had this printed in France from a lady on Etsy and I love them. I add them to all pieces now, on the back is my blog address and my Etsy store.

I also loved choosing the buttons for this cardigan and loved that I had these gorgeous leaves in my stash.

Finally, here’s a gorgeous shot of little Mary-Catherine in her cardigan (and the bonnet, about which I’ll be blogging later on) with her gorgeous sister Isla in another one of my creations.

FO: Twin Waistcoats

Late last year an old work colleague of mine asked me to knit a pair of matching grandfather waistcoats for her adorable twin boys. I used one of my favourite patterns for boys from the team at DROPS. I’ve knitted this pattern a few times, for Luke, my nephew and for a few other people. It always looks adorable when little boys wear it and it is a great, easy and quick knit.

My friend picked the grey, which works really well and I decided to use similar buttons, they just had a different tint to them, one set yellow and the other set green. And look at the gorgeous boys in their waistcoats, and aren’t they just so very handsome!

Two adorable boys in two lovely waistcoats!
