Grace’s Candy Cardigan

Grace's candy cardi

Hooray, I’ve finished the candy cardigan for baby Grace! I can’t wait to see her Mum’s face when she opens it.


New arrivals disrupt my week

Last week was pretty busy preparing for the school May Fayre so not much knitting got done. However I did make a sash out of garden trimmings and florists wire, and a pretty cool paper mache Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hat – seperate post to follow.

I’m supposed to be knitting a cardigan as an auction prize, won by the school head teacher for her grandaughter. I’d completed the back and half of the front at the weekend when I met the 2 year old little girl at the Fayre. There’s no way a size 2-3 will fit her so time to start again! No work done on it this week though as I’ve had a couple of lovely interruptions.

The first was the news that a friend’s baby had been born, a beautiful little girl named Grace. I’m working on a cute striped cardigan in candy colours for her. Almost done now, I can’t wait to see her mum’s face.

The second new arrival was at the wool shop – some irresistable new wool. I’m hoping to make Hayley a summer cardigan as soon as I’ve finished the auction prize. I can’t wait to get started now!
