Lady Sunnyside

At the end of January I posted that I was finally going to finish my Lady Sunnyside sweater by Tanis Fibre Arts. (See that post here.) It’s a lovely top-down cardi. It’s a simple stockinette stitch but with a fancy boarder option. I chose the lace but there is also a simple cable twist version as well…

Totally comfy to wear. I can see it being a staple already. On to the next WIP!!! Hint…my husband will finally get a sweater. Stay tuned lol!

 

Sorry Isaac

Does this sweater count as my first crafty piece of the New Year? I worked the ends in and sewed on the buttons…I’m going to say it counts!…

This is from Debbie Bliss’ Baby Cashmerino 2…

You really can’t go wrong with stripes on a baby, unless that said baby is too big to wear the sweater! In this case dear little Lord Isaac could probably just fit into this 9-12mth sized cardi but alas he may have needed to be pried out! I assumed this might be the case but I only had yarn for this size because I was going to make it and have it ready for when he was born…my fault. I managed his mom’s expectations though and she kindly agreed that I would keep it for another baby to be born. I have a good friend expecting in February so if its a boy…

(Oh, incidentally, I have also made the shrug on the front cover. Very cute indeed, but it did need a huge soaking of a block to have it lay flat. You can see it here on my ravelry page… Hania’s Shrug)

Lucky Boy

My arms are feeling the knitting ache! I have mailed Lord Isaac’s blue cardi and have started on his stripped Christmas number. I only had enough for the 9-12 mth size so I thought I better get on the move!

I’ve chosen a Debbie Bliss pattern using Baby Cashmerino yarn…

I’ve chosen similar colours but a little less baby blue. I’m half done the back…
