So this is one of those posts where I play catch up and try to combine the three posts I've been writing in my head over the past week into one post. Ok then? Here we go ...
Firstly a little Valentine's Day gift to Sienna's new favourite person
Inspired by her own heart which has been (surprisingly), still carted off to school every day and occasionally loaned to sad friends who, "don't have a heart".
Secondly my first and certainly not last Milo has been cast off and sent off to the bestie and her new babe.
Knitted up in gorgeous Spud and Chloe Sweater Wool bought on my travels to Purl Soho last year, this one was a collaboration from the explanation of "Kfab" at craft camp (thanks Kirsten), my first cabling (thanks Alison) and the final rows at craft night last week (thanks again Alison and Suzy). Due to some technical difficulties (?) this was meant to be the six month size but will probably eventually fit the little dude when he's two. More Milo details here.
Also off the sticks (to make way for Milo mark #2), is my second version of this little number cast on when Ms Pink decided her new favourite colour was purple (details on Ravelry)
Again due to technical difficulties (?) I somehow went from stocking stitch to garter after the sleeve making. By the time I realised what was happening it was too late to turn back so I decided to embrace the wonk and push on.
And finally (still there?) I am doing something so far out of the ordinary for me ...
... checking my gauge. Again and again this gorgeous yarn has been cast on, knit up, measured, only to be frogged and begun again. But I'm determined to get this one right for the little fellow I'm cooking up.
Phew! All done.
For more, probably far less long winded creative spaces hop on over to Kirsty's new digs.
