some knitting pics

for the sister
these aren't all exactly really recent photos but they are some updates of my knitting projects.  I was halfway through knitting this little kimono jacket when I found out I was pregnant. It was a pattern I was keen to try as it's totally seamless (gotta love that!) and was created by the talented Jacki from the Complete Fabrication. It's a great little knit in 8ply, and makes a lovely quick gift :D

These little newborn size longies were knit up in a couple of days when I found out I was pregnant; the yarn is called Chocolate Encased Purple from memory, it's a lovely aran weight BFL that I bought from Baa-Bum. My longies pattern of choice is the Perfection Pants with a few personal alterations. 

Since then the morning sickness that has lingered all day has made knitting pretty much impossible until a couple of weeks ago.

So Lily became the recipient of a cute little hat. This is the Giving Pixie a beaut little pattern that comes from Little Turtle Knits.  This hat was so quick to knit and will be perfect for my little rainbow child for at least a few winters.  It's knit in Monsterknits Rainbow Lorikeet in an aran weight BFL. 

And lastly, now the knitting mojo is back this is cardigan for me; February Lady Sweater (an awesome pattern by  Flintknits based on Elizabeth Zimmermann's famous February  Baby Sweater) knit out of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran in a lovely blue colour. My progress on this is a bit further than this photo suggests, I just have the sleeves to go :)
