Pretty In Pink

I am certainly getting my money's worth from this knitting book

I completed this fish jumper [design J], then knitted a striped cardi [design H]  using wool Liz had given me. I finished that on Boxing Day but have yet to sew it up. Since January 1st, I have made a hat [design J], and bootees [design G]  These are for a newborn little girl, so I was able to do something pink for once! Now I am working on the cabled sweater- design L, the last pattern in the book. It is the most complicated- I am doing it in a larger size [on the grounds that my grandchild will probably have grown quite a bit before it gets finished!]

The hat was an easy double-moss pattern - and the bootees had a regular moss stitch cuff. I changed that to a double moss so that they made a set. The wool is Rico Baby So Soft [from John Lewis Sale - 35% reduction] and was very pleasant to knit up.


  1. Aw! Pink! You are an efficient knitter!

  2. I'm a big fan of Rico yarn. It's always beautiful quality to knit with.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
