Moo Cards!

Image
At the last craft fair I realised I was nearly out business cards.  So I got on the 'puter and ordered myself some new Moo cards.  However this time I got them printed with photos of some of my knitted items on the back.

I love them!

We're having Oliver baptised this coming Sunday and rather than make a whole new outfit he's just going to wear the gown that I made for Emily - back in the day!

It is rather girly though so I knitted a simple cropped jacket to go over it and a matching bonnet, as it is November and it will be cold.

The cardigan is the Baby Bunting Sweater, just done in one colour, and cropped. I also made the 12-24 month size and made it larger again to ensure it would fit him. This pattern does seem to knit very very small.

The bonnet is from an old Patons book I have. It's supposed to have a lace border but I just went for plain garter stitch instead.

Pretty Gloves

I made these gloves last Christmas for my sister and my mother loved them. So she asked me to knit a pair for her friend who's turning 50.

I used Sublime extrafine merino so they're lovely and soft.

Images from the Market

A little late, but here are some images from the local business market I did in our village last Sunday. Not a fantastically attended market, but I made enough to cover the cost of the stall and a little bit more so it wasn't a waste.

I also got to talk to some lovely people.
