Baby Boy Knits..............

Hello Friends, I can't believe it's over a week since I last posted, I've got so much going on at the moment that I haven't been near a computer. I will catch up with all your blogs in the next few days, though.

My sister's baby boy is due any day now, so I've been knitting little boy cardigans, ready to give my sister when the big day arrives. I've knit plenty for baby girls before but I've only started knitting for boy's in the last 6 months, I was really surprised at how many trendy little knits are out there.


When I went to Brean a couple of weekends ago, I found a good old fashion knitting shop in Burnham, I loved having a mooch around, you don't get many bricks and mortar knitting shops any more. I bought the King Cole Baby Book 4 which is full of gorgeous patterns including this little shawl collar cardigan, I bought some Paton Smoothie DK in this denim blue and was ready to go.

I've now started another cardi, when I was at our local craft club, last week, I saw my friend Dee using some yarn that gave a mock Fair Isle effect. It looked gorgeous knitted up so when I popped into the local haberdashery shop, that has a small selection of yarn, I spotted some Sirdar Crofter DK which was what Dee was using.


I bought a couple of balls in this pretty blue and chose a simple stocking stitch V-neck cardigan pattern, which has knit up really quick, so I hope to have this finished tonight.


Finally, I wanted to share this super sweet photo that my friend, Maria, sent me of her grandson. He is wearing the Debbie Bliss Teddy Bear All-in One, I knit for him, back in November. Doesn't he look cute, in it?

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.

Do your talents know no end? This is gorgeous and will no doubt look more than adorable on your new nephew. There's actually a lot of knitting shops over here. I wish I could knit :-( well, I can knit basic but couldn't follow a pattern for the life of me! I'm still hoping to learn to crochet at some point ;-)
