Hello there. It's astonishing how quickly these Sunday afternoons come around. The week seems to have vanished in the wink of an eye, with a blur of lesson observations, Sport Relief activities and a never-ending supply of marking.
I've picked up the needles for a few rows a couple of times this week, but most of the back on this little jumper was completed on Friday and Saturday evenings. I'm using Rowan 'Baby Merino Silk', which is really soft and knits up beautifully.
The pattern is from my favourite baby knits book. Hopefully, I'll have enough yarn to make the little hat on the front cover as well.
I'm just making the little jumper and leaving off the pocket this time. I really like the sweet little roll neck, bottom and cuff edges and the button opening flap. The pattern works really well. I've already made it in blue, using cotton.
However, I'm not such a fan of working with cotton as the seaming never seems to work as neatly. I've made the hat once before as well. Here it is, again, in cotton.
Hopefully there will some finished projects by this time next week, as they are both for little Evie. It's only two weeks until the Easter holidays, when we shall be travelling up to Dolby Forest for a 'cottage week', before heading to Manchester to catch up with up with our family.
