I'm what's called a slow knitter... In the case of these items though, slow took on a whole new meaning. They were both part done projects for more than two years. But no Longer! I have finally finished them and in time for a friend who's expecting a baby in the New Year.

One was a simple baby jumper in white with patches of pink, green, purple and blue with a simple cable up the front and two stripes where the knit becomes purl to create a relief pattern (Is there a technical term for that?)

White Baby Jumper

The second project was a pastel mint green baby cardigan with stripes of small checks in yellow/lilac and orange/blue. I didn't enjoy this project as much as the other so it's even more of a relief to get it finished!

Mint Baby Cardigan

Two knitting projects down! Hooray! I'm back to working on outstanding crochet projects and finishing knitting some scarves. I just need buttons for a finished crochet project - but the price the local shop is asking is unbelievable so it's in a holding pattern until I can get some cheaper ones.
