I’ve finished off a couple of baby things recently, although as usual they both sat around buttonless for a couple of weeks before being properly finished. Both are basic raglan-sleeved cardigans knit from the top down (no seams. I hate seams)

The first is from a 100% superwash wool that was donated by Ulla, from the Bjursås stash. I found some cute teddy-bear buttons to finish it off. The button photos is more accurate in terms of colour:

The second is made from Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, a lovely yarn that is 80% bamboo and 20% wool. It’s got a lovely silky feeling and nice sheen to it. It’s another top-down raglan cardigan, but with a V-neck this time and a simple cable down the sleeves. I had a packet of cheapo white buttons in my sewing bits to use on this one.

I also made a pair of socks recently for Paula’s belated birthday present. These were from Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn, which was very very nice to work with. Much better than the cheap stuff I usually use for socks 🙂

My other recent knitting is for Christmas gifts, so I can’t post anything about it here 😉
