FO photos

I finally got round to buying some buttons so I could finally finish off these cardigans. A little yarn did slip into the basket as well, some pink for a Lavanda for my eldest and some green DK which may become an Oriental Lily for Ava or some more Milo's or who knows >.< Anyway, firstly here is my BSJ (Baby Surprise Jacket) that I made aaaaaages ago using my left over aran scraps and 5mm needles.

Not the neatest BSJ in the world given I wet felted the scraps of yarn together into a Magic Ball


It's more of a Toddler Surprise Jacket though as due to the stretchy nature of the pattern, the aran yarn used and the fact I have teeny children...


Yeah, it fits my 2.5 year old!


Could probably do with reblocking now it's got buttons and given that it's been folded in my yarn box for a few months. Still, it's keeping him cosy now


The other FO I want to show you is my Spring Time in Hollis


Please excuse the slightly worn looking pictures, she's been wearing it quite a lot recently! Such a pretty stitch pattern :-)


And here are the obligatory modelling shots ;-)



Someone else wanted to join in the fun so here she is showing off her Milo :-)


It's my eldest's 6th birthday next month and she's asked for a pink cardigan. I don't think I'm going to be able to knit the Lavanda cardigan in time for her birthday but we have at least chosen the yarn (the pink I mentioned earlier) and the buttons. They're actually rather pretty, especially when the light catches them :-)


My eldest boy whom I making the Neverland Hoody for has also chosen his buttons. I thought something made of wood and very simple would look nice. Perhaps even some toggles. But he's a 4 year old boy so what did he choose?

Dinosaurs. *headdesk*


Still, at least it means he's even more excited about his hoody and will hopefully wear it! I've not knitted much of it over the past few days, got a bit bored with the sleeves so knitted up a quick hat for my OH. First time I've actually knitted him anything! Photos to follow later as it still needs blocking. I'll also take some photos of the moebiuses (moebii?) I've made as well
