FO Milo and Ripley

Pattern: Milo by Georgie Hallam

Yarn: Cleckheaton Country Silk (discontinued) 8ply, 1 1/3 50gm balls. I got this yarn for a bargain from our local yarn shop, yay for discontinued yarn 11 balls for $3/ball.

I can't say enough good things about this pattern what a gorgeous vest so simple but very cute. The option of five easy cables is great for anyone wanting try cables for the first time. I knitted this up in the 3 month size with a little extra length to fit for a bit longer. Something I do with most of the kids knits I do. The aran cable looks great and I can't wait to try one of the other cables, maybe the owls.
This is a gift for our friends having their second wee boy due next week. Our weekly friday mummy and baby catch up group are giving her a surprise baby shower tomorrow afternoon I can't wait. Second babies don't seem to get as much fuss and adoration as the first so we thought we do a little something to make her feel pampered and special.

Pattern: Ripley by Ysolda

Yarn: Naturally Sensation 10ply yarn, about half a ball

Another knit I finished lately, a cute hat for my gorgeous sister's birthday last month, modeled by my lovely MIL. Hopefully I will get some photos of the hat modeled on Sis (hint hint). What a nice knit, simple and interesting enough for TV watching without being too complicated. My first of Ysolda's amazing patterns she is so talented. I bought her Whimsical Little Knits ebook and I can't wait to try the rest.

I have a few other WIP (works in progress) on the needles at the moment. Including Young Einstein hooded cardi for Tessa, a little ruffle scarf for myself and an Earflap hat for little bro's birthday. Hopefully I will have a few more FO (finished objects) to share by the end of the month.

  1. I've had the pattern for Milo for a while now but never got round to it. Yours looks great, maybe it will motivate me to try it.
