Id started knitting the other week and I was waiting to see what flavour the baby was going to be before I finished the button bands. Yesterday I was dithering which buttons to use but in the end I went with some little crystal ones that set the silver grey off perfectly. I almost went with the pink - but then thought neutral is best for matching!! I love it when I get photos of my creations being worn/used and I log it down in my personal portfolio, even if the cardigan/creation is only worn/used once for that photo!
Hope they like it. I've started another little baby knit, but this time it's for the 'in case I have Grandchildren and I am unable to knit anymore drawer' as it would make me incredibly sad to think of all the babies out there who have worn something I created and my own children couldn't be gifted anything like that. Of course I will show you all once done. It's an old fashioned Matinee set - my absolute favourite to do. Although this one is not my favourite one as it has flipping MB all the way through it! For those non knitters out there it stands for Make Bobble and it's teeny needles and fine wool which is fair tricksy for me to do. it's in white with a hint of sparkle!!
The murder mystery night for Macmillan was brilliant fun. I was Bery Belter and the host sent us out our scripts and instructions. Everyone dressed up and got into character and much laughter ensued given the dodgy accents that were being banded about! I was NOT the killer and actually none of us bar the HG ( who wasn't taking an active part - just watching and listening ) worked out the real killer! Not saying who in case it's a one size fits all and others reading this might do it. It was by Macmillan for Macmillan and our little group managed to raise over £100 for them. It was fun.
|My sister brought me an emergency lockdown jigsaw to do. She brought two - this is the first. Its' a London scene and I've done the edge pieces so far and a few red bits. I do try to pace myself eeking it out a bit!|
|Here is Madam Squishy Lips with her favourite ball. That she destroyed yesterday. I had to take it off her because it was a light up one and I could not risk her swallowing any of the innards of the workings.|
Right off I go

What a lovely wee cardigan! I never thought about knitting for my future grandchildren in case I'm not able. Thanks for the inspiration :-)ReplyDelete
Such a lovely cardigan, and a great idea to make your own little stash as well.ReplyDelete
Our dogs had one of those blue squishy light up balls. Our Chihuahua Percy destroyed it!
Dogs eh? lolDelete
Congratulations to your friend and her daughter & family. Good to read mummy and baby are doing well. The cardigan is gorgeous. I love the daisy detail, have you knitted that into the pattern or are they appliqued on? There's a baby at Toddler group who turns up in the most gorgeous hand knitted cardigans made by her doting Granny.ReplyDelete
The murder mystery sounds fun and well done on raising a good sum of money as well. I won't be taking part so you need to text me and tell me who did it and where because I'm a nosey b&&&&r! Have a good day. xx
The little cardigan is precious. I love your idea of knitting ahead for future grandchildren. XReplyDelete
