These three cardies were the object of my attention.
Blue cardie: This is Lily's school cardie. It got its ends weaved
in, buttons sewn on and a bit of blocking action. It's a little design I'm playing around with, not sure where I will go with it. It's knit from Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply, which I chose as it's cheap and machine washable; perfect for a school cardigan. Hopefully, it will hold up to frequent washes.
Yellow cardie: I'm just a wee bit embarrassed to admit that this has been sitting here finished since early January waiting for the final touches. I weaved the ends in the other night and today sewed the buttons on and blocked it. This is knit from Biggans Designs First Cross Merino DK and is my Olearia pattern. I think this yellow one is my favourite; now I really want a yellow one too!!
Mauve cardie: I'm still finishing this one off, just have the second sleeve to go. I'm hoping to get this finished tonight. This is my February Elizabeth Zimmermann knit; the Baby Sweater on Two Needles (also known as the February Baby Jacket). You may notice it's not exactly baby size; a simple upsizing of yarn weight and needle size makes it into Lily's size. I've obviously also added more length. This is knit in a New Zealand Merino/Possum blend.
On my table, I'm admiring these gorgeous Oriental Lilies and sort of missing the little girl who creates little scenes like this throughout the house. It's a campfire! And she's at school.
