A new baby in the family!
With the recent arrival of a new baby girl in our extended family (and what a wonderful Christmas present!), I jumped at the opportunity to start on the Sunnyside baby cardigan by Tanis Fiber Arts. I am using a skein of 4 ply Touch merino yarn I bought at the Craft & Quilt Fair in June this year and a pair of Hiya Hiya Sharp 100cm circular in 3.75mm. The cable is a bit long but it's the only one I have and it is not too much in the way.
I am in the middle of the first chart repeat and so far so good although I do have to concentrate. The yarn is very nice and soft and the colours are perfect for a little girl. I am making the 6-12 months size in time for her first winter.
Whilst winter is still a few months away, I want to finish this in early January so that mum can take it with her when she visits bub and the new parents.
So I'd better get cracking... happy stitching!
