We are still in Manchester, making the most of the chance to spend time in the new world of our beautiful, teeny-tiny little granddaughter, Evie. She is super cute and settling into life in the big wide world really well.
She is so teeny that newborn clothing dangles from her little legs and arms, so some hasty shopping was required. I found this cute pattern for a '5lb Baby Cardi' here on Ravelry. Perfect! Two balls of Sublime 'baby cashmere merino silk DK', a couple of pointy sticks, a set of DPNs and a very few hours later...........
The pattern is knit from the top down all in one piece, with the sleeves being completed on DPNs. So, no sewing up; just a few ends to sewn and five little buttons to attach.
Isn't she adorable! I am totally smitten! I promise to be back blog-visiting at the weekend, when we are back home and there is time for such things. For now, I just need to soak up little Evie.
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful 2014! Here's to lots more happy 'bloggy' times with all you lovely folk.
